This code will take 12 files (one representing each month) and make a chronological mix of random sections of each piece.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Set audiojournal to a location on your harddrive containing WAV files with the following 12 names: 'jan', 'feb', 'mar', 'apr', 'may', 'jun', 'jul', 'aug', 'sep', 'oct', 'nov', 'dec'

WAV files must be stereo.
