The second time I used Vox for productive labor back in 1988, the only thing working in the program was its automatic chord voicing function. I found a sequence of three chords that I liked very much in about 30 seconds. I decided to fracture each whole note chord into eighth notes and see what the chord voicer would do to the fragments. The voicing pattern used in this tune popped out about a minute later. I loved it and named it "Miracle" since it seemed miraculous to me that I was able to find something I liked so much in such a short period of time. It seemed too difficult to write a melody that would fit something that was flying by so quickly, so it just sat on my hard disk. I got my nerve up this summer(1996), whacked this melody out in two hours. Believe in Miracles.
