Mike has been a software engineer far longer than he would like to admit. He has strong opinions on baseball, software, science fiction, comedy, contract bridge, and European history, any of which he's willing to share with almost no prompting whatsoever.

    It is a canon in thirty-six–Yes! Thirty-six!–voices. There was a fad for such massive polyphony, but I was a brief one, I suspect due to the technical difficulty, but the small repertoire it produced is fantastic. In this example, the entire text of the canon if ‘Deo Gratias.” This can come through as a cheap gimmick, or as childishly simple, but in this instance the simplicity of the text is gorgeously balanced by the musical technique.Report
