2021-01-18 (M) Electronic Wind Chimes EWC_OST

After my experiences with MIDI instruments, I knew this project would have a panic button, and I had a miniature EStop operator that seemed appropriate. From my earlier models of the EWC, I kept a function that would stop all notes, but I wrote some code to display a red screen with a yellow box and the word "PANIC" with some subtext that said, "Twist to release." When the button is released, it refreshes the four moods, which had an unintended consequence. I knew I would have to call functions to display the settings during startup, but I hadn't gotten around to it. However, when the system starts, it registers every button as a falling edge, as though it had been released, so it began showing what I wanted.
