Some points of interest - Fri Sept 1 - Simone de Haan plays WB's "Responses and Compressions" for Trombone and Cassette - first performance in about 30 years!

Saturday 9 September - 3 pm - classic fixed media pieces including "Harbour Symphony" by Catherine Schieve, recorded in 2006 in St John's Harbour, Newfoundland.

Saturday 9 September - 5 pm - new pieces by former composition students at Box Hill Institute.  I've heard them all, and they're all really interesting.  Congratulations, guys!

Saturday 9 September - 8 pm - premier of the full 8 channel version of WB's "Mosaics and Transparencies" for multiple recordings, live mixed and diffused.

I hope to see some of you at some of these events.  I think it will be a blast.
