I have attended and enjoyed participating in two Florida Electroacoustic

Music Festivals, 1997 and 1999.

I can attest that the presentations and programs are of the highest
comparable to any I have attended over the last few years...if not in
certainly in diversity of style and integrity of production. And one
aspect that not many fetes have is the featured composer-in-residence,
who not only attends but is invited to present a lecture on his/her
This year's composer is Barry Truax...whose work is internationally
(he's a Magistere de Bourges, for instance) and whose writings and
music innovations are legend.

The fete now has an excellent octophonic diffusion system in an ideal
space...which has excellent acoustics for such and which is comfortable
and intimate as well. I expect to submit a work and, if accepted, pay
my own expenses to go and participate. Ask anyone who has gone before.
It's worth it...and there certainly is a spirit of community and
accomplishment there.
