A big thanks to everyone who replied, either here or in private. The
replies fell into three groups, listed below.

Remember, this was for a 10 minute diffusion (not the diffusionist's own
piece), including prep, rehearsal time and the performance. The ranges were:

1. $0-$20 USD
2. $120-$175 USD
3. The going rate for an instrumentalist in that particular place (here
in Montreal this means it would be $268).

The idea that a diffusionist is equal to an instrumentalist is very
interesting. I do not necessarily agree, but at least the pay scale is
way better ;-)

Thanks again!

Ian
