Intrenational Graduate School Possibilities

I have finished my undergraduate work, and am exploring possible graduate schools. My interests are obviously the whole spectrum of art from visual to audio, and digital or virtual to analog or meatworld. What are the premier graduate schools for art and technology: form robotics and software art to interactive sculpture and digital music?

I also have just produced an audio CD created primarily using the opensource program Csound. Tracks can be heard at www.aproximation.org (play or download) and www.aproximation.com (play). The CD should be on sale at cdbaby.com next week.
I'm curious to hear what you think of the tracks!
A second, more accessible disk is pending me saving enough money to get it printed, among many other expenditures.



Re: software art vs. programmed art

This might be just an argument, and perhaps not based in reason, but doesnt a flower describe itself, but also some aspect of all flowers as well? Is not our opinion of something formed by what we witness of it and others like it? Why do our pencils have to be sharpend to so fine a point?

I would hope that my work in code does not get pigeonholed before one views it, simply because of the method of it's implementation.
