Indeed. After starting work on a MIDI generator for Cocoon, it entered my
head that we could commission a Cocoon signature tune. OK, admittedly, this
is somewhat inspired by Microsoft's win 95+ logon tunes which, with daily PC
reboots, we have heard echoing around our offices all too often. Given this
is open source, and unless Brian Eno is lurking sympathetically on this list
we may have to write it ourselves?

So, my first thought was to take the letters of the name "Cocoon" and turn
them into notes using the time-honoured method of assigning each letter to a
note thus:
Letter: ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
Note:   ABCDEFGABCDEFGABCDEFGABCDE

This produces the following catchy pentatonic tune:
C A C A A G

With octave displacement the possibilities grow immensely!

Any composers on the list? I have a degree in it, but that don't mean thing
if it ain't got that...
