        Sylvie,

        Is there any chance you can get a CD to me for Musica Nova tonight?
Short notice I know, but this is the first I heard about your project.
I'll be up at SFU this afternoon if that helps (maybe I could get a copy
from Barry?), or I could head downtown early and pick a copy up
somewhere.
        I'll be here for another half an hour. Otherwise give me a call today
at 604-312-3756; that's my cell number. I'll be in meetings most of the
morning, so leave a message and a number to contact you and maybe we can
work something out.
        Sounds like a cool project.

        Cheers,

        Andrew
