Me, I'd run screaming. That's not to say everybody should.

If I had no choice but to do it, I'd do it as best as I could. I'm sure it can in fact be done, and be innovative -- or not.

Regards,
Mike

So here's the scoop.

_You_ (a non-chinese composer) have been asked to create the ea
setting of two chinese folk songs to be played by pipa with stereo ea
accompaniment. This will be one part of a concert program.

You can expect an audience of 1500 people who come from a traditional
chinese background. You have been asked to create a sonic fabric
which will introduce the use of ea into this traditional venue while
not being alienating.

As a composer concerned with "new" and "innovation" do you accept the
conditions?

Best

Kevin
