I even missed that in some pieces, a beginning, an end and something in 
between. Often pieces sounds static or like a sound demo but no moving 
composition. Maybe it is a different school, I could imagine some 
reasons to create pieces that static way but it is not my cup of tea.

About typical sounds, its not Linux related, I made similar observations 
in other electroacoustic events which focused on other systems like Mac. 
There seems to be always the synthesis du jour and suddenly you hear the 
same artefacts everywhere. Maybe its sort of musical standards or riffs 
like you have in other genres like Blues. Annoying was the release of 
Ableton Live where suddenly every laptopper (what a word but I use it 
offending, intentionally) sounds the same and claim to use granular 
synthesis which is a joke, granular is much more than a bit studdering 
through your properly non original samples.

But I dont blame anyone, just observations, I have to prove to myself 
that I can do interesting compositions, thats more interesting and fun 
instead of being negative.
