The Transport Project

Following the successful Door Project and the follow-up Money Project I am proposing that for 2003 the community again take the challenge, using a sample recorded during ICMC 2002 in Goteborg. The sounds come from the city trams, and other traffic noise. The challenge is, based on this WAV sample and the task is to create a musical work. The rules are a little more complex this year, in an attempt to save all the last minute hassles.

Detailed Rules

Please address any questions to jpff at


This project was encouraged by a number of people. At present I will only name John Rimmer who was also interested in the sound of the trams.

I woudl also like to thank Codemist Ltd for their continuing support of these projects
