woodnote: a wild or natural musical tone, as that of a forest bird.

This one did not go where I thought it would at all. I had to keep adjusting and layering, and by the time I was happy with it I’d clocked in at probably 6+ hours. Remember, these pieces are the size of a CD case. It ended up being one of my favorites, but it took a long time to get there.
