The same green beast we saw at NIME, right? Has anything changed in

Was the seizure the thing being sonified? sorry... couldn't resist.
I have never managed to make ChucK make noises quite like that. Maybe
in all your free time, you could conscript a grad student to throw an

Seriously though, I did enjoy this performance as a whole. Amazing
work for a free jam. There were some nice moments.
