Sounds cool. If I hear that right, the VCS part might be 
a bit too fiddely for the planned effect in certain

The space it has to *dance* was just way too small to 
make his moves recognizable enough. 

I bet no one ever noticed :-)

*vectorized* cave thing idea I had for the Cave game. 
You could have something like a strobing flash, 
generated live out of the actual music data... :-)
