PMusic: Open Compositions
'There exist pieces about which it is said that their form or structure is "open"' (Mark Eslin).

Inspired by the concept of 'Open Source', Chameleon Lectra is developing 'Open Compositions' - projects in which sounds (and sometimes other elements) are contributed by people external to the site in order to build a music/sound art work. The word 'open' can be applied here in at least two ways: one, as in the 'open work' and two, as in 'open submission'.

The first of these, 'The Sound of the Field', was launched on the 28th January 2007 and featured sounds contributed during 2006 by members of the mail Art group 'Field Study' and other invited participants.
