All grumbling aside this is a solid production. It features alot of Scotts best material from reline and some new content that can is also well thought out. If you like is frenetic camera style, then you should be please with this work. On the sound side Speedyj provides his best performance since his phenominal break through album "public energy." Don't pass up this holiday stocking stuffer.
i.e. World peace, stop global warming, save the forests, etc...
This list is in no particular order:
* cactus from dry garden
* nomad cafe gift card
* a big shovel
* Pair of headphones
* gift certificate to ameoba
* subscriptions to wired and rez magazines
I'll think of more things later....
also note: I want products that are made in the United States preferably California.
If you have been a Meridian Gallery Composer in Residence, and would like to have your work considered for the podcast, then please contact me.

[:] PLUG3 [:] will transmit 48 live performances for 2 days in participation with the Tenth Annual International Headphone Festival – LE PLACARD X – a nonstop streaming interaural experiment that migrates from city to city broadcasting headphone concerts in listening rooms around the world. The festival experiments with exploring new medias, sonic perception, levels of concentration, isolation as inspiration, and spontaneous modification within a global community of eclectic culture- jammers, curious engineers, instigators and self-sufficient sound artists. Initiated in 1998 by Parisian musician Erik Minkkinen, who broadcast a performance from the closet in his apartment to listeners in Japan, LE PLACARD is a nomadic "festival within a festival" that functions under a modality of open programming; artists performing self-organize this global program.

On the Internet guilty pleasures abound, but purhaps none so sinister as subscribing to the Bay Area New Music email discussion list. The witty banter bounces back and forth like a tennis match of ascii text. Just reading is probably your best bet, also know as lurking. Because any posting can entangle you in a multi-dimensional free for all; if only the democratic process could be this diplomatic. In the past these lists were none to clogg inboxs, crouding out "important" correspondences. With todays email filtering options and larger storage quotas , The email lists have become the magazines du jour. All the messages get routed automagically to the folder, that you can convienently perouse at your leasure. One can subscribe with only a valid email address at http://music.mills.edu/mailman/listinfo/newmusic or read through the archives. Leave some comments if you want it to get tied in through a blogger feed?

There is another version that the domain has been re-routed too. It isn't exactly a mirror, but rather a fun alternative. The regular homepage should return sometime in march.
