I was fairly involved with Mego about a decade ago, and I don't think much
of the work has really held up.  As much as I like Peter, Florian and the
others the stuff we thought was so groundbreaking back then ended up not
making much of an impact.  The third track on Peter's "Get Out" remains a
standout as does Fennesz's reworking of "Paint It Black".  What is
interesting to me is that both of those started from quite musical sources
and retained just enough of those musical qualities to not only catch the
ear, but remain in the memory after a single listen.  This is a something I
rarely find in computer music.
