The Money Project

Following the successful Door Project I proposed that for 2002 the community try a similar challenge, using a composite sample recorded during and after ICMC 2001 in La Habana. The sounds were recorded in the tourist market near Casa de las Americas, and in a smaller tourist market next to the Hotel Havana Libre. The challenge was, based on this WAV sample, create a musical work.

Detailed Rules

The Decision Time has Come

A listening panel has heard all the pieces, and the concert arranged at a lunch time during ICMC2002 in Göteborg, Sweden.
