By the way, I will be accompanying my wife (who owns a sheet music store in
NYC) to the Musik Messe. If anybody is interested in my presence during GMPI
discussions there, I will be available. I would also be interested to meet
with anyone who is interested in tape music, computer music software,
Csound, and such like.
