Hello Effy, it is great to see such an accomplished musician on Akouson! As you are an artistic director, would you be able to promote some of my music? Although I have been writing for several years, I am now getting some good quality performances, which are generally received well by audiences. My webpage is http://www.musiciansgallery.com/start/composers/dedman/malcolm.htm and you can hear some of my music at http://www.reverbnation.com/malcolmdedman. Please email me at malcolmdedman@gmail.com if you feel we can work together. Regards, Malcolm.
