Hi Skye
Jens gave me the link to your map soundplaces,.. I started a new group Overtone Music locations and my Idea is to creat a map like yours but for locations that present overtonemusic. How did you do your map can you help me or post one in the group?

I read some of your explanations on the sound/color relationship which I consider really sophisticated. Cool.
