Introduction       Animated Sounds can be utilized for a large number of different applications depending            
        on use cases, target groups, and much more. This chapter invites you to think about             
        possibilities and opportunities to develop new ideas for musical deployments of Animated           
        Sounds and adjacent marketing strategies.                            
Ideas       Application     Description                            
        Sound Surf Beach   A matrix of Animated Sounds is being navigated through a            
                  "Surfboard" that consists of multiple play controls. A number of          
                  the play controls are highlighted to indicate a possible action.          
                  Each action is being followed by a new set of indicated play            
                  controls. This way, the user is creating his own music while            
                  surfing through the matrix. The resulting Sound Trip can be recorded        
                  and shared with a friend by email.                    
                  The Sound Surf Beach realizes a kind of musical "Garden of the          
                  Pathes" (Borges), referring to the "open art" concept as elaborated        
                  by Umberto Eco.                          
        Sound Letters   Creating a kind of Sound Letter Chain through email + Sound Page          
                  attachments with friends.                        
                  Letters can be created personally, or being selected from an online list.        
        Greeting Cards   Building a site of greeting cards (or approaching a greeting card          
                  site) with the inclusion of invisible Animated Sounds, promoting          
                  Freesound and the sound author(s) through a special link.            
        Audio Screensaver Computer screen saver equipped with a lively sound atmosphere.          
        DJ patches     Developing sound pages that provide exciting batteries of fill-ins           
                  for DJ sessions.                          
        Promotional sounds If a Freesounder agrees (see CC license), his sound can be used          
                  in an animated fashion to support commercial brandings over the          
                  Internet. The income of those activities can be shared between the          
                  parties (author, Freesound site, FleX project)                
        Music for      Dance companies can be accompanied with complex sound          
        dance groups   environments in real-time, providing the flexibility to react to the          
                  stage rather the stage following a fixed tape/disc recording.            
        Laptop Music     Playing Freesound Music on multiple Laptops should be fun!
