Hi Sophia;

I like your idea a lot. The eclipse will be very in Karlsruhe, Germany.
A lot of tourists will come here to see it, you can buy black sunglasses
everywhere already now. The mayor gave a way a commission to Oskar Sala
from Berlin (He made i.e. the film music for Hitchkock's "The Birds") to
compose an electronic piece which should be played during the whole two
hour-sequence from the beginning to the end of the eclipse.
This wil be recorded be TV etc. I myself will go into the deep forest to
record the birds and forest animals during this time.

I would be interested to share and exchange recordings of this "event".
