??? What I was attempting to put across
was/is that I felt that Prix Ars were simply turning things on their head
rather than trying to pull digitally produced musics head out through
its Ars which would be far more interesting... and might actually
result in a real musical mutation (a word Eshun likes to use)
rather than grafting one corpse to another and trying desperately to
bring it to life with the output of a 20K sound system.

Eshun's book by the way is mad and fantastic (Brighter than the Sun??? I
forget the extact title - the subtitle is Adventures in Sonic Fiction).
