>Mp3Babelcast The babelcast (RSS feed) is perhaps the first
>algorithmic, computer-generated podcast. Using generative algorithms
>available in the open source, cross platform, Python-programmed
>athenaCL system to control Csound, this series is a sort-of
>political media-talk mash-up. Sounds of politicians and commentators
>are collected during a period of days or weeks, and then
>algorithmically processed, recombined, and mixed with noise and
>percussive textures into a fragmentary, distorted landscape of
>sound. It's mesmerizing."

>Hi All!

>In line with Rodney's post about the politicians mashed up
>algorithmically, all done with open source stuff, here's an idea
>which I freely give to the community. People are welcome to do what
>they want with this. It seemed the most interesting way to approach

>1) Wearing binaural microphones, walk around someplace, describing
>what you see.
>2) Take this recording back to your studio, and write some music to
>mix with it (use anything from notes to jackhammers for the music).
>3) Post the mixed recording on a website, for people to download,
>and listen to while walking through some other place.
