The [60]Project was composed by one of the authors in 2008 in response to a commission from the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival to celebrate 60 years of musique concrète using sound contributions from over 60 of the worlds leading sound artists. The paper discusses the composition in the context of other related works such as Dhomont's Frankenstein Symphony (1997) and the open electronic works of Pietro Grossi. The paper also considers issues of authorship. The writings of writers such as Foucault are referenced in order to examine the work-composer relationship. The archiving methodology of the [60] project by INA-GRM is also discussed.
