  Work Details  
  I called my audiophile friend who owned a Swiss-made CD player and asked about it. It was a simpler method than I suspected. I bought a copy of Debussys Preludes and brought it to my friends place. By his engineer friends suggestion we simply made many pinholes on bits of Scotch tape and stuck it on the bottom of a CD. I had many trials and errors. I was pleased the result because the CD player behaved frantically and out of control. That was a perfect device for performance.
