    Hello Drew — Greetings! This is Zach Wallmark – we presented together at the “theorizing performance” conference at CUNY a few years ago (you did an interesting piece on Ives and his editor, if memory serves, and I did a paper on Andrew Hill). I hope this message finds you well.

    I’m writing because I’m a regular reader of your blog (I never comment, I confess) and I think you’re really on to something by using this informal format as a venue for music scholarship and related discourse. It’s an exciting frontier, and you’re at the forefront of it!

    At present, I’m working on a doctorate in Musicology at UCLA, and recently another grad student and I launched a blog with a fun premise – we’re going to read all of Richard Taruskin’s “Oxford History of Western Music” 10 pages at a time and blog on our experience, the text, historical questions, the philosophy of music, and every other issue the reading engenders. We’re calling it “The Taruskin Challenge,” and you can find us at: taruskinchallenge.wordpress.com. Think of it as a sort of “Julie and Julia” for music geeks.

    The blog was featured in the news feed of the AMS website and Twitter page today, and faculty from a number of universities are working to promote the concept to interested students and musicologists. We’re inviting anyone to read along with us, join into our discussions, and contribute. To this end, we’re actively courting readers/writers and trying to get the site linked on other respected blogs and websites. Since launching, we’ve settled into a groove of about 300 unique hits a day.

    I’d love to hear what both of you think about the project. If we’re added to your blog roll, of course the favor would be returned. Thanks so much for checking out the blog – I’m excited to hear back from you.

    With warm regards,
    Zach Wallmark zwallmark@gmail.com

    Shouldn’t your subtitle be “Musicology in 1,000 Words or Fewer”, rather than “Musicology in 1,000 Words or Less”?

    I’m looking for a musicologist to help me with a copyright infringement matter. To make a long story short, a commercial was made with music that was pulled directly from a song I composed, and I need a musicologist to analyze the similarities. Any recommendations would be fantastic.
    Thanks much!
