Helen Thorington: Welcome Scot. You were a member of the computer network
band, the HUB, and an early pioneer of computer networked music. Tell us
about the HUB and the kind of work you, John Bischoff, Tim Perkis, Chris
Brown, Mark Trayle and Phil Stone did at that time.

Scot Gresham-Lancaster: The first Computer Network Music grew out of an
underground new music scene that developed around the San Francisco Bay Area
most specifically Mills College and the Center for Contemporary Music. There
are several resources that might be of interest to those readers that want
to investigate the historical background.
