hey all you lovely stuffed shirts ... :-)

th Candian Consulate ? what do i know ? nothing ....

i'd recommend contacting Professor Truax (et al) at SFU, duh ? i'd imagine
Dr. David Murphy (my bro) would know how to upload and stuff by Wednesday.
and i'd go on Saturday and begin going over th DAT tapes with them to start
th transfers to MP3 etc. But that will have to be after i meet Michael
O'Neill and Kenneth Newby for Coffee on th Drive ;-) Didn't Davide Paquette
do his MA on / off Commercial Drive ?

There are a few lovely shadow puppets (who are really humans in dis.guise)
who would be able to help pass th puck or dats, discuss th logistics, and
do th other mundane stuff ... required to compose 8 channel symphonies /
upload sounds to SONUS etc ...

but is your studio Access-Able ? and do you provide th pop corn ?

west of, sylvi macCormac
