Hello all,

I would like to diffuse (in 8 channel surround sound)
the myth that if you work
for an academic institution, you have unlimited, all-
expense, paid trips to any conference your music is
accepted at. This type of blanket funding does not
exist! I spent more than $2000 last semester alone
traveling to concerts (at my own expense).
The University I teach for payed for none of it.

As a curator and promoter of electroacoustic music myself, I
cringe every time a festival, conference, or individual
is attacked over sour grapes!

Keep up the good work Jim, and all other promoters of EA
