Stand Up, Sherlock [disquiet0045-sherlocksawyer]

Dance break!

Kinda off my beaten path, so have a laugh with me on it. Did not use a guitar this time (honoring a promise to @all-n4tural).

Sentence 1 (from Tom Sawyer):
“I dare you to step over that and I’ll lick you ’til you can’t stand up.”

Sentence 2 (from Sherlock Holmes):
“A shadow of a doubt as to my conduct would bring the matter to an end.”

Resulting Sentence:
“I a-dare you to step over that wood [sic] shadow, and I’ll lick you ’til you can’t stand my conduct up, as to bring the matter of a doubt to an end.”

Linguistic license was taken with the word “would” to use it as its homonym “wood.” Then I collected a bunch of drum, bass, elec piano, turntable & synth loops hanging out in my “Drive H:” and kitchen-sinked them.

First, select one sentence from two different pre-existing spoken sources and combine them in any manner you wish into one sentence, using the entirety of both sentences.

Second, add an underlying sonic bed — a musical score — to lend dramatic tension to the newly created sentence.
