Points in Time 3.0

Originally a local radio show I developed and hosted for a couple years, "Points in Time" switched gears and moved to the web a year and a half ago. It presented a weekly playlist of experimental/electronic/ambient/etc sounds for the better part of a year, then fell dormant. Now, it's back in a format I've always wanted to pursue. If you visit the new "Points in Time" you'll get an interesting mix of live and recorded audio feeds (including air traffic from Amsterdam, atmospheric sounds via NASA and a shortwave broadcast from Turkey), all blended by your browser and a bunch of embedded Windows Media Players.

The choice of feeds (and server unpredictability) builds a healthy amount of randomness into it, guaranteeing a different "performance" every time you visit. Just be patient while the feeds load initially.
