Last year's Soundings ... series in Edinburgh (Scotland) was a great
success, featuring over 70 electroacoustic works in 13 concerts.

This season, Soundings ... will present 8 concerts of electroacoustic
music in the Reid Concert Hall, Edinburgh during 2004/05.

This call is for 8-channel works -only-, although we are also
looking for ambisonic works either decoded for an 8-channel
array or 1st order ambisonic works in B format (which we'll decode).

   Please label the files clearly with their track number
   OR
