“But even for a demo I would use a different set up. You hear how tinny the upper register is and brittle the percussion was? Sucks.” complains Engineer
“Excuse me this is for the $20,000 grant right?” Composer #2
“Yes” answers Seasoned Staff who’s simultaneously texting someone about a party tonight.
“Well,” continues Composer #2, “I wanted to apply for this category last year but they said I couldn’t because it wasn’t written 100% by Canadians but neither is this one! It says they wrote it with Sven Puteånfjord in Scandinavia that’s not fair!”
“For the record, I would not vote to approve this. They should know how to record properly.” adds Engineer.
“I’m confused” says Composer#1 looking at seasoned staff person for direction but they’re off in text-land.
“They played last winter at a benefit for the Church of the Holy Trinity” says the Editor “we were suppose to interview Albert Schmegelski the first violinist and he never showed up.

Seasoned Staff Person: So we’ll pass on this one and move on? Everyone good?
Everyone nods they’re good.
