Everyday Listening: sonic inspiration collects inspiring and remarkable sound art and creative sound design projects, installations, reviews of urban soundscapes, places, contemporary or experimental, mostly electronic music. You might also read about new ways of using and distributing music and sound.
The term Everyday Listening is used to describe the way we use sound to find our way in our everyday life. There's an article by Buxton, Gaver & Bly giving a very clear description of this phenomenon:
"Everyday listening is a matter of listening to the attributes of events in the world - the speed of a passing automobile, the force of a slammed door, whether a person is walking up or downstairs."

Sound artwork: Nonrepetitive by Achim Wollscheid
Through the graphical interface the user/participant can influence the parameters of a sound data generator, effecting things like sound colour, density and complexity. The impact of the change can be seen on the interface by other users visiting at the same time, in another place and they may also mutually interfere through the interface, in order to change the generation of sound.
Once you grab the line - representing the present wave spectrum of what is to be heard - and change it, any other user online on this page will witness the alteration. In other words, this piece is not an applet that you download, but an online piece that you actually change on the server while others can watch, listen, and equally interact. The piece is thus subject to a play or negotiation between partners.
