WebProject on-line mentoring via IRC and WWW was a tremendous success.
  • For information on the planning for this program, please read
  • On Thursday, March 6 there was realtime chat and exchange/critique of Midifiles with composers Anne La Berge in Amsterdam and Richard Tolenaar in Amersfoort. A heavy snowfall in Vermont almost cancelled this event as the server was operating on batteries until power could be restored. Unexpected visits were made by two composers in New York, Laurie Spiegel and Nick Didkovsky.
  • On Saturday, March 8, realtime chat and philosophical discussions took place with composers Rhys Chatham and Eliane Radigue in Paris. For the first time in years, Rhys and Eliane were joined by Laurie Spiegel, and also in New York, composer Tom Hamilton dived into the 3.5-hour session.

Gimpel the Fool, an opera by students of Su Lian Tan of Middlebury College, was performed on our live broadcast on Saturday, February 15, 1997. It was performed by an instrumental ensemble of 16, chorus of 20, with five singer soloists. This was the only broadcast performance of the complete opera Gimpel the Fool! It will be internetcast in its entirety this spring. For information on tapes of this or any K&D broadcast, see our tapes page.
