Interactive Audio on the Web:
http://trace.ntu.ac.uk/Review/index.cfm?article=80

This essay looks at a few works that have been created over the last few
years, discusses elements such as interface, composition, instrumentality,
and music, and then provides lots of great links to work that highlights
interactive audio; there's also links to offline interactive audio projects,
and links to news sources about the art.

Works discussed:
Electrica by Gundula Markeffsky, Peter Huehlfriedel, and Leonard Schaumann
(Germany)
Intercontinental Spontaneous Jam Session by Pall Thayer (Iceland)
Pianographique by Jean-Luc Lamarque (France)
Music Generator by James Tindall (Britain)
Nio by yours truly (Canada)
Network Auralization for Gnutella (NAG) by Jason Freeman (USA)

"It is important to point out that the most notable works on the web in
interactive audio are done by individuals or small groups of artists
producing their own work. We don't see music companies doing the outstanding
work. This is not often so in other areas, such as computer games.  Part of
the reason why interactive audio is dominated by individuals is because of
the artistic fusion it demands in various realms. We see a creative
synthesis of audio, visuals, animation, interface design, and programming.
Interactive audio is about changing music and hypermedia, not marketing the
same old stuff repackaged for the web."
