    P E R P E T U A L   I N T E R M I X  
  definition:    
   

multiple music tracks of various lengths
     play simlutaneously, and
     loop perpetually
when the tracks loop they line up differently
     because each is a different length
this generates a new intermix of tones
     continually creting new pieces of music
           or at least new 'variations on a theme'

 
  instructions for use:  
   

you can start or stop each track
     to hear each independently
or drag the play head forwards>> or backwards<<
     to change the relative positions
           each time creating a new mix of sound
you can alter the mix by adjusting the volume levels
     of each track with the volume pull-down slider
     at the bottom left of each control bar
