Thanks for participating in the site. That's what it's for. If you can,
email others in the Yale music, other music group you know about the
site and encourage them to send in stuff about concert, performance,
experimental schedules they know about, no matter if it's about
themselves, or seems inconsequential, and about other matters: debates
on art, music, performance; stories about stuff having to do with art,
music, performance, etc.; stuff having to do with their own music,
performance, conducting, composing experiments, experiences, thoughts,
etc. Maybe compose a nice email about the site, current debates, site
rooms, etc. and broadcast it to groups and people all over the place,

The site is really picking up, but needs to expand beyond the present
group to reach outside the circle and pick up people in Europe, Russia,
Middle East, Asia, Latin America and in the US who are trying to find
new ways of expression.

Anyway, it's nice to hear from and about you, even if it's from the
