I like to process the sounds of the audience. A few years ago i
participated in a performance of Stockhausen's Originale at Theater
Artaud in San Francisco. I had several mics deployed throughout the
playing area, and during the final applause I used these to capture
the applause sounds and to prolong it with a 30" delay on my TC2290
(of course this reinforces the herd instinct and people kept clapping
for a long time). Eventually the audience figured out the gag and
started to leave, but I kept feeding the sounds of their exiting
through the system until they were all gone.
