quintuple CD

sounds like a very good idea. By now so many people have expressed their
interest (some of them not happy with a 5-minute-limit) that not even a
double CD would be room enough.

I'd vote for a single CD with an average length of 5-6 minutes. (No problem
to me because many of the improvised tracks that I've done are 5-6 minutes
<g>). Let's just start with a first CD. If it works out ok, we can always
do a second and third one.

One other thing: If we want this to be a commercial success, how about
asking somebody famous (like Torn) to contribute a short clip. (cries of
disgust) Ok, ok, this is a stupid marketing trick, and of course we *are*
all fine enough musicians and our music can stand for itself ... it was
just an idea. What do you think? (I'm sure Torn would contribute one of his
cool loops which are only available on expensive CDROMs.)
