All composers and sonic artists are invited and encouraged to contribute

perception can access freely.

For class use, students can be directed to specific works, or encouraged
to explore the range of pieces. With access to parallel articles on
analysis / description (starting with http://www.econtact.ca), the
Sonus.ca site is an invaluable teaching aid for both the sound-oriented
and the general student of this art form.
