Web Based Computer Music
This experiment is about theft. Let's re-purpose interfaces that aren't musical and turn them into instruments. I'm currently waiting permission to use this demo: http://js1k.com/demo/385

Using mongrel2, because it is pretty fast, I made a computer music interface which allows me to instrument a page to steal it's events so that I can make computer music from them.
Thus it is web-based, but locally rendered computer music.
This means I can have the audience interact with a composition with their computers and phones!
The music is rendered locally with programs like CSound and my computer music messaging system.
