This nice article popped up in The Scotsman! We like this quote:
Machover’s Edinburgh project has embraced online participation as far afield as China, Turkey and Thailand. “It’s been a marvellous way of encouraging people to listen to the world around them.”
How very John Cage. “Not quite,” Machover argues. “I think what Cage did was to take the world for what is was – beautiful enough to listen to. I’m trying to find and extract the music. That makes it more interesting, like what happens when Beethoven and bagpipes collide.”
Sounds like Edinburgh alright.
