Please answer the following questions and email them to me by 2/3. There are no right answers, and even though some of the questions are complex, you don't need to write a thesis. This will help me to know where you are coming from....

Who are three of your favorite contemporary artists - in any medium, including sound ?
Please discuss your technical background, including: what type of computer / OS you use, what software / hardware you have used, and what is your general comfort level with computers and technology. Please don't overstate.... This is not a requirement for the course.
