I started by thinking of limitations. I sampled the source material at multiples of 9. I then thought of making a virtual instrument that could be played only with my thumbs. I loaded the samples into Reaktor's Memory Drum2 ensemble and "played" them via a Korg Nano keyboard. I used it like a kalimba.

The performance was recorded in Reaper and minimally processed through Isotope's Ozone. The mix isn't as bright as I'd like, but that's ok.
