  Btw, for those who may not know, some of Bill's seminal work is 
available in reprint in various MIT/Computer Music Journal publications, 
e.g. "The Music Machine", "Current Directions In Computer Music 
Resaearch", and "Foundations of Computer Music". I recommend all those 
MIT/CMJ books to all serious students of electroacoustic music, not only 
for Bill's articles but for all the great stuff in them. It's still 
interesting stuff to read, and it gives us dwarves some idea of the work 
done by those giants upon whose shoulders we stand so elevated.
