is the SoundCanvas User's Group anyway?
|The SoundCanvas Users group was
started on the Internet and CompuServe by Greg Evans & Paul
Stillwell. The initial idea grew out of a desire to hear what other
composers and musicians were doing with this exciting and affordable
synth. Please also see our Mission Statement.
The main goal of the group is to compile and release in one archive a collection of new and original music written specifically for the SoundCanvas.
By inviting as many composers as possible to participate we will be making available, to those who are interested, new and possibly interesting musical creations. The only real rule for the group is that the music MUST be original.
So, if you're sequencing Guns-n-Roses covers, take them somewhere else! Beyond that, anything that can be played back on a SoundCanvas is fair game. i.e.Techno/rock/orchestral/jazz/weirdness/minimal ism/blues/country/blah/blah/blah are all welcome as long as it's original.. BIAB accompaniments are NOT considered original, as a real composer did not write everything.
The group is managed by Gary Agnew, Xavier Delorme, and David Peters.
