in this workshop each participant acts as a active node in a creative
network using technologies such as TWiki and chat. Using software you
normally use we will embark on an experiment to breed a piece of audio
art. We will evolve a sound piece starting with a library of sound
files provided by the .microsound list and then will mutate and
cross-breed them until a work of sonic art emerges. The final piece
will then be performed for the public by the group at the end of the

turned into some kind of melody.
Waveforms. A slow, quiet pulse along the spectrum.'
