To the Hostetlers and everyone I met in D.C. this weekend:

Thank you so much for a terrific and stimulating Living Room experience. I
am envigorated and exhausted at the same time.

To the meeting:

I knew Randy because I sang in the Yale singing group Redhot & Blue. We were
not at Yale at the same time, but we met at one of the Redhot & Blue reunions
which take place at Yale every 5 years. The next reunion is coming up in a
couple of weeks, and I am looking forward to seeing lots of people who knew
Randy there.

I am producing a six-concert series here in New York, at the Anthology Film
Archives in the East Village, with fellow composers Eleanor Sandresky and
Philip Glass. We are starting the process of reconstructing the score and
parts to Randy's P(L)ACES so that we can perform it on the series, which
will start on September 9, 1997. The Hostetlers and I amassed several
computer files (in ProCo), a Third Percussion part, the visual-notation score
which he used to conduct and the videotape of the reading which took place at
CalArts. What I need now is contact with any of you who played in that
reading, or were involved somehow in the preparations for it. I'm looking
specifically for actual parts which players used at the reading, because they
contain handwritten markings which are not on the computer files. Please
e-mail me if you have parts, or even if you just remember something about
Randy's work on P(L)ACES which you think would be useful. Or just to tell me
you were there, so I can ask you questions about it. The more I know, the
better. Thank you!!!
