        for a little self promotion and to help the cause:


        The first few minutes of "Beware of Falling Astreroids" makes
heavy use of the space station string effect (in this case, me "bowing"
the strings on a champan stick with a steel rod processed though the
space station). The rest of the track makes use of the space station
as well, notably one of the bit crusher/decimator patches.

        Maybe not the best example because of the extended technique
used, but its a start... At some point that sound gets looped and
plays though most of the rest of the piece.
