Sonic concentration. In advance of a proper launch, this record-label and music-production site put up a simple game: click on one of the black squares from a grid of 18, hear a sound, then go in search of the sound’s clone. If you hit a pair of matching sounds in a row, both squares get colored in. A downtempo groove in the background keeps pace, and elevates the entire distraction to the level of “song.” And if you’re looking to mess with your speakers, call up multiple copies in different browser windows. Now that the site has been launched, the audio-game is listed under a link to the “sound puzzle.” (Entry updated June 30, 2002.)
