To anyone who is in possession of a wind-up metronome: the Ball State New Music Ensemble is planning a performance of Györgi Ligeti's Poeme Symphonique for 100 metronomes on our October 17 concert in Sursa Hall. We are in need of 90 more mechanical (wind-up) metronomes for this composition. If you have one (or more) that you would be willing to lend the ensemble, I would be happy to come pick it up from you, label it with your name, and return it to you after the concert.
