Re: FW: iTunes Signature Maker


Make a $25 donation to Turbulence.org and receive Jason Freeman's limited-edition compact disc which includes a series of short experimental sound works that algorithmically stitch together bits and pieces of the music Freeman has listened to this year. He created them as exploratory studies during the development of iTunes Signature Maker.

Thanks for your support.

Now you see us, now you don't

Dear Friends,

First, many thanks to those of you who have already made a donation.

To those of you who have not:

WHAT IF New Radio And Performing Arts, Inc. (NRPA)-the umbrella of
Turbulence.org, networked_performance, and New American Radio-WERE TO GO
AWAY? We believe many of you would miss us. Yet many of you have NEVER
SUPPORTED US.

We're often informed-directly or indirectly-that many of you are great fans
of what of what we do: you enjoy the art we commission, exhibit and archive
on TURBULENCE.ORG; you visit our NETWORKED_PERFORMANCE BLOG regularly. Many
of you use both "Turbulence" and "networked_performance" for research and
coursework, or simply to stay tuned to the pulse of emerging technologies
and the artists who create with them. NEW AMERICAN RADIO provides a
chronicle of radio/sound art (1987-1998) for personal listening as well as
for broadcast worldwide. Finally, our public programs-FLOATING POINTS (an
annual lecture series in collaboration with Emerson College) and UPGRADE!
BOSTON (a monthly gathering of new media artists in collaboration with Art
Interactive)-provide a forum for numerous artists, curators, students,
scholars and the community in general.

As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, NRPA's finances are public
record. Our 2004 Financial Report shows that NRPA's co-directors had a
COMBINED income of $28,000; our 2005 Financial Report will show that we had
a COMBINED income of $25,600. While ours is not, by definition a "gift
economy," we do GIVE A LOT; in time, expertise, and financial support.

Please help us keep on giving. Make a donation today. It's easy and you can
even select an artwork in exchange. Show us you value us by simply clicking
here http://turbulence.org/fundraiser_05/index.html and making a donation.
No amount is too small.

Sincerely,

Helen Thorington and Jo-Anne Green
