I've played it on my 32 sec. JamMan before, by syncing it to a MIDI clock
at 113.75 bpm, looping 16 beats and letting it play 9 times. OK, I really
haven't played it, but I could if I wanted to. Of course, if I wanted to do
all 3 movements, I'd have to work out a tempo map to fit all 3 movements.

together - dum, dum, dum, dum - fire, cosmic fire."
