I took some food images from my iPhone, in particular, one of a meal my girlfriend prepared recently, and filtered them with Sutro.

That’s Red Snapper on Rice with Curry Carrot Sauce. Thanks, Bets!

To my eye, the Sutro filter makes things look dark and classy. So I imagined a piece of music with Chinese “flavor” (bad pun, I know) being somewhat dark, but classical sounding. What’s more classical than a solo instrument, or a sonata? I did a bit of research on the sonata and found that it originally meant to sing. I then picked an ethnic instrument that had a hint of a voice singing in the patch (“Nomad” on the Yamaha XS6).

The result is my Sutro Sonata, a short piece of music suitable as background ambience for fine dining in a classy, upscale Chinese restaurant.
