Here's an interesting item we got from our friends at Columbia University's Research Center for Arts and Culture. They've put together a survey aimed at composers of all styles and backgrounds, in order to get a sense of the needs of this particular musical community.
Here's the official spiel:
New Music Needs Your Voice
The American Music Center (AMC) and American Composers Forum (ACF) have teamed up with Columbia University's Research Center for Arts and Culture to conduct the first major study of living composers. The study aims to gather important data to guide our efforts in better serving and advocating for composers of all styles and backgrounds.
If you are a composer, you can be a part of this important research. We invite you to contribute to the study by filling out the online survey at the link below. The survey is estimated to take 20 minutes of your time. Your participation will broaden the study’s reach and give us a better understanding of current trends in the field. Thank you for helping us to help composers.
