I like the idea, it links into several other online composition events i have seen or heared of. I like this one, it is suitably evocative and visually interestin, but the instructions need serious editing. please give a clearer and more consise description of what the project is about and how to use it, or re-format it, it is so impossible to read. Loading time is not bad at all, but i don't understand where the artist is coming from here. Is this an excercise in interactivity, is it a musical investigation. It all seems a bit too banal, no spice, no effect. Wallpaper. Maybe |I'm missing the point, in fact i'm sure i am. Clearer instructions may help. I dont want ot be too condemnatory. It has interesting possibilities. Needs editing. good luck lots of love sauly

This is very cryptic and somewhat frustrating. The navigation is not all intuitive. But this is what makes this creation so addictive and so much fun. Good job.

Excellent. So clever and beautifully executed. I personnally work on correspondances between letters, numbers, colors and so on based on mystical judaism philosophy. Good to see such a search on the web. Go on, I want to see more. Best, astrid

Well, of course it's cool. Coooool coooool cooooooooool Surprising no more further feedback from PORT. Nevertheless I keep saying It's darn cool (So says my friend becca). When is it gonna be a world wide collage- I want to see what the folks in Tasmania Are doing with this... You know the world thing.

I like the "Arrangements" site. I do, though, find the buttons and the arrangement of items to arrange a bit confusing, but maybe that's part of the fun of it. I wish the record function were longer, and that you could selectively delete just one item rather than keeping or clearing all of them at once. Thanks for making the site! I look forward to seeing the rest of it, and playing other people's compositions.

Great start guys! It's a wonderful idea but some things need to be made clearer. The alphabet seems unclear, ie, what alphabets are they and why is there only one letter available in each alphabet? I was hoping for a whole range of letters, not just one. The color chart works just dandy as does the sound. My play button kept disappearing as did the submit button. I kept instead, hitting the clear button as that was the only one that was showing up, thinking that I was gonna hear sounds. As a result, all my "work" was lost. Is there a way to include an "undo" button in case, like me, someone hits the wrong button? I LOVE the floating help palate. Loads quickly and looks gorgeous. Congrats! I look forward to seeing the full blown version. Kenny G.

The concept though ancient is very cool. There is an island in the Javanese Atoll peopled by a folk whose basic language is dance, emphasized and underscored by their music. They commonly associate sound with color in a way too elaborate to explain in a few sentences. But what you are working on here is genuinely refreshing and I encourage you to continue to press foward. A broader range of tonal sound would be wonderful to work with but perhaps that will come with time and experimentation. But for a beginning, Bravo! Maximillian

I think that "Arrangements" is an intriguing work in progress. I agree with however, I do also agree that the sound is a little buggy. I believe that the refined piece will definitely be engaging f.f

very New York-like. But then, it's good, because it's nothing like I've seen here in England. only problem I got, is how the ?uck do you navigate. and "whatdoesitallmean?". Inspirational and will definately pass on the url.

A relatively engaging "composing piece". Was not able to understand instructions except after trial and error. Would like to see wider variety of visual choices. Did not understand how sound "attached" to objects. Bye and best.

I liked it. The interface is visually beautiful and very subtle. This subtlety was relected in the palette of symbols and sounds. It's simple -might I say it- intuitive interface made the required trial and error easy to deal with. The limited instructions were fine because I enjoyed the experience as a little exercise in discovery. I see some worthwhile uses for expanded versions of something like this. A tool for creative expression, art therapy. Wish I had more time to play with it.
