Am researching Dvořák and Leoš Janáček for Mac Rogers' Universal Robots.
Columbia University has a bunch of recordings on the interwebs in .mp3 format. There are recordings of the New World Symphony in the public domain linked on Wikipedia.
Plus also too I want some col legno samples. You know what I want. Maybe I should just get a cheap violin bow and play them on the guitar?
I ordered a cheap bow on eBay. We'll see how it goes.
I have a friend who used to have a one-bedroom here for $849 a month. He thinks the rents are a bit higher now, but not much (he moved out less than 6 months ago because he bought a new place). It's in Jersey City, which is pretty quick to right around the corner from my studio via the "Hudson Tubes" (the PATH train). Riding the PATH will add $3 a day to my commute (if I also get an unlimited Metrocard).

And I can't find my orange rugged external hard drive.
