The Era of Tactical Sonic Integration has arrived.
Back in 1985 the little clique of teenage nerdboys I ran with had one of those BBS-based take-turns-posting-a-chapter storyboards. Given our ages and proclivities it turned into a Miami Vice-with-Apple IIs techno-fantasia pretty quickly, and among the symptoms was the car my pal Synth imagined for himself: a DeTomaso Pantera with an integrated digital synthesis/audio processing system that (among other things) could sample and reamplify the sound of the engine in three-part harmony while you were tearing down the highway at 125 miles per.
Twenty-one years later, the technology has caught up. Too bad you can't say the same for our prose...
