Please don't feed the composers

Good news for my friend, Doug Opel, and his inclusion in this year's Petting Zoo, live in NYC!

The idea behind MATA's Petting Zoo was to allow passersby the opportunity to see and hear living composers at work, to experience new music in all its glorious diversity as it is being created. Though it was strange being on display, I have to admit it was a brilliant concept. Many people took time out of their day to stop, listen and converse. New music seldom makes that sort of connection with the general public in my opinion, this was a rare and potent exception.
Congrats, Doug!

See, it's not all poetry here.
