Butch:

To answer your question, let me quote from our "about" page:

"And please contribute your own performances!

If you'd like to upload them directly onto our server, point your FTP
client to ftp.livingroom.org, log in anonymously, go to the directory
/pub/livingroom/ and upload your file. Then please let us know it's
there by emailing the host.

If your work is already somewhere on the Web, we can either point to it,
or load it onto our server -- whichever your prefer -- so let us know
where it is! (Again, email the host.)

Which format? For sound, we'd like to stick to RealAudio as much as
possible, for compression and download reasons. So ideally, you should
send us your files either in .ra format -- or as a .wav file, which we
can easily convert. But we'll take .au and .mid files, too. (Do you have
a preference? Tell us why.)"

Does that answer your question? We're still working on specific specs...
My preference at this point, I guess, would be for those of you who
actually have sound equipment (I don't) to tell me. The easiest for me
would be to get RealAudio files (perhaps two, one coded for 14.4 modems,
another for 28.8 and above; the RealAudio encoder is free from
www.real.com...)

Take care!
Dan
