In my concerts I learned to address listeners directly, describing why I had chosen to build two new microtonal instruments, and demonstrating the pitch combinations I'd chosen for each piece. People responded warmly, in particular those living outside the main urban centres, who had never heard new music before. This gave me hope then, and the experience later, that unfamiliar music can be genuinely enjoyed by so-called average listeners, that the music writen by me and my colleagues was not encoded in a strange and incomprehensible language. ______ Gayle Young.
