Hi Terre,

thanks for the reply. I understood you fairly well, but you aided with your
narrowing the PAE problem to that of direct digital synthesis [but I dont
necessarily agree with: "(ie., conservative, complicit with Modernist great
White male canons, ivory towers, uninteresting to the common folk, etc.)"].
Anyway, this seems to be the legacy of the computer-music-school part of the
larger electroacoustic diasporia, and it seems like we must all deal with it as
best we can.

Well done with your Honorable Mention for a jazz based piece. Seems like another
good cross-over.
