As a follow up to our recent music discussion, Here is a new release of
many sound loops free for use (with attribution). I only have a portion
of it downloaded so far, so can't offer a full review.

Thanks a lot for the link!!

I've been trying out the OLPC's XO-1 laptop (loan from a friend) and
had hadn't noticed the samples.
Boulanger has been pretty active in electronic music circles for quite
a while. 'Figures.
Csound itself could be described (as strange as it sounds) as the TeX
of electronic music. It's free software (LGPL) and has been part of a
number of cutting edge music projects for twenty-odd years. If you
know how to code and have some interest in music creation, it's an
important tool to try.
Jean Piché used Csound to develop Cecilia (with Alexandre Burton) and
TamTam (the OLPC music software.

My friend Alex Burton (who worked with Jean Piché before TamTam) sent
me this link to another site for CC soundfiles:
