There are many ways in which electro-musicians can contribute to the editorial pages of E&MM. I believe it is important that the magazine should encourage musicians and technicians at different levels to contribute.
From this month we extend a warm welcome to Patrick Moraz, one of the world's leading keyboard players, who joins us in an advisory capacity, along with Dave Bristow, Alan Townsend, Tony Bacon and Dave Crombie, who have supported us in many ways from the start. Don't expect consultants to write for us every month — although they often do! — their role is a sort of musical 'think-tank' for us to solve your problems and make sure we bring the latest developments to your attention.
If you feel that you can review something in our field with the standard of practical and technical content expected in E&MM, then you've nothing to lose by putting an article together and submitting it. Don't forget, too, that specific areas in the magazine might encourage you to have a go — 'Home Electro-Musician', 'Cassette Reviews', and 'Circuit Maker' in particular offer participation from most readers if you put your mind to it.
There's always been strong support from the music business for E&MM, and although many companies have found it impossible to advertise their products during the recession, they nevertheless are enthusiastic in its aims and future growth. So to any companies who have a new product for the electro-musician and would like some help with the editorial, let's continue to hear from you.
Finally, it can take several months for E&MM to reach some countries. Don't despair, we are still excited by far-off contributions telling us about the music in your area — such as our latest communication with the only electronic music institute in Poland.
