dearest Morgan

why think you think you very much !!! can i use that on my bio as a critical
review ? it must be all th rain / trains out here and th reverberation off th
mountains ... are you learning how to be a 'stuffed shirt' who can recognize a
good education when he sees / hears one ? .. i see, it's th virgules that are
throwing everyone off kilter ...

go boyz / grrrrls go .... best o luck with th essays / exams ... dsp & audio
box(es) ... gee, and i was hoping fir psuedo-comedic ( lol fall down laughing
lol ) ...

we could put pictures of ourselves on th walls with stop signs across our
mouths ? would someone plz approve th motion, so we can move on and get to our
next meeting / course ... ? think i will do a compositon o th sounds of a
co-operative meetin ... sounds like CEC-conference with hopefully more signal
than noise ... speaking of 'Sound&Noise' th Festival is in it's sixth year -

2005 - Jury Duty for Signal & Noise - http://www.signalandnoise.ca/ -
http://www.videoinstudios.ca - Celebrating its sixth year, the Signal & Noise
Festival will be presenting a rousing program of video, live sound
performance, multi-channel electroacoustic compositions, installation and
performance. This year's theme is : Body, Bodier, Bodiest.: Exercises in
Physical Potentials. We invite you to submit work based on the following
themes:

Stunts

Demonstrations of astonishing physical & auditory antics,
remarkable feats, capers, and daring interventions in public
space. Live-action and pre-recorded acts of prowess, skill,
dexterity, heroism, virtuosity, daring, cunning, or just plain
self-importance for an evening in celebration of the show-off.

Fluids and Functions

Works dealing with the internal and external structure of the
human or non-human body. Interpretations of internal and
external elements, including body systems, sounds, actions,
environment, and metaphysical realms.

The Macabre

Unsettling offerings that affect the body or mind. Recordings,
installations, and performances born of the ghastly. Inspired
distortions of the natural body into absurdity, ugliness, or
caricature. Interdisciplinary work testing the body’s strengths,
weaknesses, and physical limitations.

You work can be any one of the following:

      video work
      sound piece
      an installation
      performance
