If you make some of your work available, I would be interested to hear it and give it some serious thought re CAS

Of course. Aside from my forthcoming CD release, and, sad, to say, Ubbo-Sathla, which is out of print, my other CDs are available. My decision to interpret the tale "Ubbo-Sathla" was inspired by hearing a recording of an alligator's bellow. For me, it evoked the primordial slime and immemorial atavisms so well described in this story, and is the sound that opens the piece.

the Dweller in Gulf - wow - just as themes for wordless expression - go for it!

I find many of CAS's works to be ripe for musical interpretation, and I suspect that they will always provide an inexhaustible source of inspiration to me. One thing that I would like to see would be a CAS tribute compilation disc of electronic music pieces inspired by different works of CAS, along the lines of the Outsider tribute to Lovecraft, to which I also contributed.

Would it just have to be just electronic? I would happily love to see kunstlieder of works by CAS, and, if I had time to experiment, and equipment, I would delightedly contribute something involving audio tea leafery and text.

Well, that's what I have in mind, because that's what I do, but those who specialize in other areas are certainly welcome to try to organize a similar project.
