Chris,

Please note that the concerts at Oscar Peterson Hall are not 'CEC concerts';
the regular EuCuE events are produced by Concordia University
Electroacoustics. It is true, however, that some of the concerts have been
tied to CEC projects (including Sonus and Jeu de Temps).

I agree that it is vitally important to present sonic art in alternative and
imaginative ways, probably outside of the academy, to have any realistic
chance of attracting a significant audience to our art form.

all the best,
Ian
