Podcasting the Chimes

I recently stumbled across a neat feature that the Chimesmasters have made available to Cornellians far and wide: Recent Concert Playlists that are updated on a daily basis.

It's like a little taste of Ithaca's chiming bells far beyond blue Cayuga. For instance, did you know that they're now playing a Waltz version of the Alma Mater? Oh my.

Here's what the Chimemasters played on Easter afternoon:

* Amazing Grace (Variations) * Llanfair (Jesus Christ is Risen Today) (Christ the Lord is Risen Today) / Williams, Robert * Hosanna, Loud Hosanna (Aberdour) / Essex, George * Menuets I and II from First Cello Suite / Bach, Johann Sebastian * Alma Mater Waltz (The Alma-Waltz) (Waltzing Cayuga)

It actually makes me wonder if some enterprising engineering student couldn't take the concept one step further and start podcasting the chimes sessions through some sort of automated program. Think about it: The chimes start playing, the computer's microphone turns on automatically, and fifteen minutes later an MP3 file gets emailed to alumni far and wide.

That would be pretty awesome.
