...ties in with a strand from about two years ago, when there was
discussion as to the proper representation of ea as electroacoustic or
electro-acoustic. someone wrote that initially, the words describing a new
medium, etc. are presented separately. as it becomes more familiar, in
comes the dash, and with more general acceptance the words join, so maybe
it's appropriate during this video war-time to put the dash in e-motion.
or d-double-sharp-motion, to bring the frequency even lower, in a sense.
