Date: Tue Oct 26 1999 - 13:21:25 EDT

Dear Colleagues:

I know how one can get hyper-focused on teaching, composing, and the
daily activities of life. Please accept my apologies for using
bandwidth one more time in regards to the FEMF9. I just wanted to
take this last opportunity to encourage all of you to make your
submissions to the 9th Annual Florida Electroacoustic Music Festival.
Deadline for submission is this coming Saturday, Oct. 30, 1999 (so
long as it arrives prior to Nov. 5th it will be considered). There's
still time to put that masterpiece in the mail. I look forward to
hearing your works. The boxes of submission are beginning to overtake
my office (my students have had to dig me out several times this past
week)...the more the merrier! This year's festival is shaping up to
be the best ever!

Best Regards,
