hmm, harmony of th spheres & universal beats ? did i spell Concrét correctly - Concréte ... does concrét have anything to do
with Architecure ? i tinker on la Pavillion ..

ooo Oui, please keep dis.cussions on line unless requested as it helps in th EA learnng environ :-) and th EA (text) composition
just keep getting richer with Hugh LeCaine et al, Ulysses & Buffy Sainte-Marie & State of th heArt Software / Hardware et al.
BUT can we use ascii art even if 'tis 101 ? if we change th title we better do it soon .. or get in trouble with computers who
don't read HTMLs. now if we were to score all our babble what would it sound like. brilliance t.here / spam t.hear / comic.aside
/ wonderful th.ear / silence

if you extend your search to dat other not so Concrét la Soundscape perhaps - Anne (Holmes) Karakatsoulis Wood on Wood on
Water (1978) quad 8:50. printed on SFU 40th Anniv CD. it is very very beautiful. i remember it from my student days, as still
clearly rings a bell ... knocks on wood on wood on water ...

west regards, sylvi macCormac
