A quick note to say that Simon and I are making a brief presentation on our work with oral history, sonic art and locative media at the twelfth Sonic Arts Forum at Leeds University tomorrow.

I went to a few of these while working on my MSc (genetic algorithms for real-time music generation) and always found it a very pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Looking forward to seeing old faces and meeting new ones!
