hello Chris

thank you for your post. OT ? of Women in EA & Electronics & New Music i think Lucia is very significant. the recordings of Dlugoszewski are very beautiful. To my ear, they sound very electronic / electroacoustic. She passed away very recently ? 2000+ ?

begs the question why some are canonized and others are not (through no fault of her / his own). Does Gender or Race play a role ? in opportunites of education and inclusion in th academies ? of encouragement & furtherence of career ?

if i drive a big Hummer am i going to get faster than if i drive a Wheel Chair at 5mph ? depends on th driver and / or th drivers helmut ? ;-)

best regards, sylvi macCormac
