About ICOM:
A single secret audio source sample is dropped in both mp3 and wav formats at a specific time. It will be made available online via the website, irc, IM, email, and other methods. It will also be made available via usb drive to local cheffers. No other external sounds or forms of synthesis may be used!

Every participant gets exactly two hours from the time of the drop to extrude sounds from the source sample and compose a new piece of sound or music.

When complete, each participant uploads an mp3 of their track, and we have an exhibition of each submission. Participants are also encouraged to examine and pose questions about each track so we may learn from each others' methods.
