Woo! Woo! Experiment! Is there likely to be _really_ good recording
equipment at this conference? If there is, then maybe you could send the
recording to someone to do frequency analysis? (Not that I distrust the
subjective analysis; it is critically important to performance. I just want
to see the sound analysis to see if it can be correlated to the subjective
impression. You can tell that I am a scientist out here in the 21st C.)
