Six New Shows ... and other stuff!
  • Six new shows are available on KalvoNet! Hear interview programs with N.N. und ähnliche Elemente and K&D's own David Gunn. We also celebrated Electroacoustic Music Week in November, fretted over political music, invented a new award, and last but not least played the marches, fanfares and dances of impeachment! These new shows join recent show postings of interviews with Mary Jane Leach (with new pix on her page), Steve Gryc (new pix on his page) and Michael Sahl (new commentary by Boudewijn Buckinx on his page), as well as our shows on choral music (a followup to Mary Jane's interview), on composer-rather-than-philosopher John Cage (he wrote great stuff!), and some birthday folks. See a new pix of David Stevens and more info.

Router Outage
  • The goddard.edu servers were inaccessible from Thursday, December 24, to Saturday, December 26. AT&T has solved the routing issue. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Router Outage
  • The goddard.edu servers have been inaccessible since Thursday, December 24. AT&T is attempting to repair a major routing issue, and hopes to have it solved by Monday the 28th. We apologize for the inconvenience. If the server is down past Monday, we will temporarily move composer pages to this Malted/Media site and give you instructions on how to access them here. Audio files will remain unavailable until the goddard.edu servers come back on line.
December 5:
Infrastructure Entropizes
  • We're about to catch up on the site with new shows, scores, music and interview clips, and photos. We did manage to get some new photos up of N.N. und ähnliche Elemente. Our hard drive, down for 23 days (no thanks to Maxtor, who's had to replace it twice), is finally functioning again, so we're diving in to the work. But we are much in need of volunteers to do updates to our resources page. We have the material submitted, but sites need to be checked and inserted into the list. Please contact us.
November 21:
Infrastructure Chaos
  • We're behind on posting new show archives, music clips, photos, and some great new score excerpts from Michael Manion because our DATs are in repair and the data and programs we use are entombed on our local hard disk with a blown integrated controller card. Anybody got a Maxtor 90720D5 to spare...? (Nov. 28 note: we're still down.)

WebTV Users Please Read
  • Attention WebTV users: WebTV and its owner Microsoft have decided not to support the latest versions of RealAudio. Please read this story, and then contact WebTV with your concerns. In the meantime, you can play our RealAudio files with any other online service. We are disappointed in WebTV's position, but cannot provide separate content for a single service provider.

We need volunteers. As the web has grown, our original idea (begun in September of 1995) to keep up with new music resources and composer sites has become a huge job. We need some volunteers -- very accurate ones -- to verify our resources and composer site links and update the 50 separate pages ... see the master pages of Music Resources and Composer Resources. Our pages are created by hand for full accessibility, so we'll need typing accuracy as well as perseverance. If you're interested, please contact Kalvos, Contact Form.
