Dear Colleagues:

A former student of mine has started presenting electroacoustic
concerts in various venues. It's my understanding that he's not
making any money on these concerts and views them as an opportunity
to present new music to varied audiences.

He emailed me with the following questions about performance rights
and I don't know how to answer him. Can you help?

Here are his questions. I appreciate your comments.

My question is about performance rights- I know that with sheet music,
one purchases performance rights by purchasing the music. What of EA
music? Do you know how one brings oneself up to code there? Does
buying a cd confer performance rights? Do you need to write for
permission, and if so, with sheet music one writes to the publisher
and not the composer?
