No complaints - it's exactly what I was hoping to see. It ticks all the boxes: innovative, musical, challenging. All ten methods are worth a peal in their own right, and the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. 

Aided by some mind-blowing compositional techniques (automated suitability testing, stochastic tunneling algorithms), the bar for Spliced has certainly been raised. I look forward to attempting this - congratulations on a super production.

(PS. perhaps that mythical Standard 8 atw with 144 crus is not too far over the horizon...)
