Bad Case of an Academic Composer

Professor, student, whatever, do people a favor and get your music performed and heard+ recorded.  I suppose its a mindset of sharing and whether you think it does any good for anyone outside the walls of a college setting to hear it, but I would remind you that there are thousands of people who appreciate classical outside academia.

I mean, if there is one thing that gets me every time, its when I visit an academic composer’s site and instantly I’m informed about the scholarships or awards, yet there is no music.  I suppose linking your sheet music is supposed to do the trick?  Don’t think so…..  I could really care less about the art of notation.  If its written on a piece of toilet paper, its still going to sound the same as if it was written on a gold-lined parchment with rose petals scattered over the top.
