Land of Enchantment
I don't make it home to the US often, so I'm happy to write that I'll be in Albuquerque from the 30th of March to the 2nd of April for the John Donald Robb Composers' Symposium at the University of New Mexico (the program is here). Making the even more happy is the fact that the headlining composer will be Gordon Mumma. Since I haven't spent much time in Universities either since grabbing my academic traveling papers and, well, traveling, figuring out the right decorum to take for a visit to a University has been a bit of a puzzle. On reflection, I suppose it's probably best to take the advice David Tudor gave John Cage upon receiving an invitation to a University and act "like a hit and run driver".
