The Paragon Ensemble (Contemporary Classical music group based in 
Glasgow) are looking fro a Java programmer to do some work on an online 
project they are running.

The project is an online interactive audio piece by one of their 
composers generating 'music' from a doctored version of a 
speech-synthesis voice.

The online part of the project is a Java applet which takes text entered 
by the user sends it to a Festival speech-synthesis server running the 
customised voice, and then manipulates the returned audio into a more 
musical structure using the Jsyn Java audio library:

    Festival: http://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/projects/festival/

    Java: http://www.softsynth.com/jsyn/

A skeletal version of the applet already exists but the previous 
programmer on the project is unable to finish the work due to other 

There is a fee of 1,000 GBP for the work.  Paragon are aiming to have it 
completed in November.

Anyone interested please contact me off-list:

If you know of anyone else who might be interested in the work please 
forward this message to them.

best wishes
