Joshua Quarles is a Genie, and or Genius

Josh is a sound innovator. I have the honor to count him among friends. Throughout our friendship and collaborations he has brought to my attention myriad aspects of sound and audio that would have otherwise drifted far above my head and out of hearing distance.
