Algorithms and rules
- Go to "Wikipedia." 
- Hit "random" and the first article you get is the name of your band. 
- Then go to "Wikiquote" and choose "Random Page" and the last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album. 
- Then, go to Flickr and click on "Explore the Last Seven Days" and the third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

For next week
- bring along a briefly researched example of what you think of as sonic art 
to discuss with the rest of the group.
