I'd be in love with this if the pieces weren't so abstract.

It still is an embodiment of a dream of mine: a band consisting of performers using purely digital instruments.

Princeton Soundlab is also home to the highly excellent ChucK, a computer music and livecoding language, and the Audicle, an editor for that language. (my chuck tutorial).

I always love this: It's so great the computers allow you to do ANYTHING with music.

OK, from now on could we just stick with pieces in 4/4 and C major with I, IV, and V chords? Everything else bugs me, thanks.
