=Purpose=
+
wikiGong is a web project pursuing the interests of a few people fascinated by very large man-made structures. Inspired by the Indonesian gamelan ensemble, we catalog the sounds made by real megastructures and in so doing create virtual instruments. These are available for use in performances or musical compositions by anyone so inclined. Links to and excerpts from future works will be hosted here, too.
+
 
+
Why we do this is probably best explained at [http://wikigong.com/wordpress/?page_id=38 our parent site].
