How random is 'random'?

The process of the experiment is as follows:

A sample is cut from one of the scenes in the classic ‘poets’ ’ film, Dead Poet’s Society. The sample features the teacher portrayed by Robin Williams saying the word “poetry”. The sample is cut per syllable, dividing the sample into three. Each sample is less than a second long. The three tracks are put into a playlist in iTunes 12.0.1.26. Using the iTunes "random" playing option, the whole playlist is played, with the sequence of playback being random. The playback is started at the track/syllable “po”. The whole thing is recorded and then faded to end (since the iTunes will play infinitely unless stopped).

This work is part of a larger incomplete work, which aims to chop the song “Dahil Sa Yo” by Imelda Papin note by note.
