hey mC~ (cec/cbc/bbc/abc/zbc)
ok . . . you win . . . ;-) i'm out with th birds (sylvan eh?)
building solar powered sonic studio II & III as linked via HTML(s)
to th WSP (world soundscape project) archives at SFU ;-)
seriously, i meant homo-centric not as in MAN centric but HUMAN centric .
. i understand and appreciate th word MAN and ROSE and their significance
in lit but there is room for new words that are less human centric . .
(see inhumanism in lit) . . as well as including WOMEN in th cannon of EA
or any literature/art/science .... i prefer writing with gender neutral
terms S/HE and WO/MAN and HUMAN KIND . . . as different from . . . .FLORA
/ FAUNA . . . MAN is a nostaligic being and if i forget th texts of WOMAN
then i do not exist . .
what better place to DIS cuss family values than via CEC . . . what's next
DIS Ability theory in ElectroAcoustic Music . . . ? . . . re-opening th
dialogue re accomplishments & abuses of affirmative action . . but you
know i'd rather give th girls in IRAQ & KOREA & AFRICA etc etc digital
recorders and mps ... etc . . .
ps dear Eliot - hey like MAN that song sounds good ... can you play that
byt again . . . my apologies fir thinking outside th box . .. naaahhh . .
perhaps we can all meet in la bistro and have some bisquits with our café
.... and DIS cuss / con ference th meaning of music . . . and music of
meaning . . . th reasons to listen and listening to reason (trevor
wishart, redbird) . . . see you there miriam . . . see you there man . .
best regards, sylvi
