sounds a byt like wht i had in mind for an International Electroacoustic Hockey
Game - pass th puck / buck / sushi - or a World Soundscape Project (SFU) for th
internet. Sounds from th WSP could also be uploaded and included. We could also
have competitions the way they do in Europe, using a set limited amount of
sonic materical to compose with. what is th name of that event ? Barry Truax
won it one year :-)

can Geeks play too ? (lol)
