1. New Look!
This issue of MTO introduces a new look for our articles presented as Web documents, using HTML "tags." Robert Judd, MTO Manager, has developed a useful and attractive template for our HTML-formatted essays. The template includes several buttons at the top, one for moving to the listing of items for the current issue, another for viewing the endnotes of the essay, two more for jumping to the MTO and SMT home pages, and, most importantly, one for posting comments about the essay to mto-talk, the discussion list allied with MTO. Those who post comments to mto-talk should use a uniform Subject: line so that a discussion thread, traceable by that Subject: line, develops. The title of this issue's essay, "Schenker's Value-Judgments," by William Pastille, makes a good Subject: line. In the future, the publication notice that precedes the release of each issue will suggest uniform Subject: lines for each essay and commentary. The suggested lines may of course mutate as a discussion evolves. The mto-talk editor, Claire Boge, may need to adjust the line to maintain continuity. We hope the new template meets with approval, and invite suggestions for improvements.
2. Did you know...?
Did you know that
MTO has more than 1000 subscribers world-wide? MTO's Web page was visited an average of 100 times a day over the last 6 weeks? MTO is indexed by RILM (International Repertory of Music Literature)? MTO is fully copyrighted? MTO has in its short 2 3/4 years published 24 essays (not counting commentaries and reviews)? MTO has an allied mailing list, mto-talk, for discussing articles? MTO has a database of its contents, indexed by author, title, and keyword, searchable through the Web? MTO is an official publication of the Society for Music Theory?
We invite you to show your appreciation and support for MTO by contacting the SMT Treasurer, Cynthia Folio, to join the Society. Watch the MTO Web page, which will soon have a Web form for joining.
3. Memory upgrade
Subscribers may recall from the last Editor's Message that UCSB granted MTO $3000 to pay for editorial, technical, and clerical help during the current academic year. I am now pleased to report a donation of $750, which was used to purchase and install 16 megabytes of RAM, bringing boethius's memory to 32 megabytes. Many thanks to the generous donor, who has chosen to remain anonymous.
4. MTO NetAds
At the recent annual SMT meeting in New York City, the Networking Committee, chaired by Aleck Brinkman (Eastman School of Music), proposed to the Publications Committee that MTO allow certain types of advertisements to appear in the journal. The proposal was passed by the Publications Committee and, on its recommendation, by the Executive Board. Beginning with the next issue of MTO, advertisements may be submitted for inclusion in a new department, to be called NetAds.
The NetAds for a current issue will be listed in the table of contents under the filename ads.current. Subscribers who use mto-serv to retrieve MTO items can order the ads by including the line "send ads" or "send advertisements" in a message addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Those who retrieve items by anonymous FTP will find the ads.current file in the pub/mto/issues directory. Past NetAd files will be named according to the standard MTO filename, with the suffix .ads (e.g. mto.95.1.6.ads), and will be found in the corresponding subdirectory of pub/mto/issues (e.g. mto.95.1.6.ads would be in the pub/mto/issues/mto.95.1.6 directory).
We hope that subscribers will take advantage of the new NetAd service as a way of nofitying the music theory community of items of interest (for example software for CAI, analysis, music notation).
5. "New Musicology papers"
One of the best attended and most thought-provoking sessions at the SMT meeting in New York City was entitled "Contemporary Theory and the 'New Musicology'." Patrick McCreless, immediate past President of the SMT, gave a ten-minute introduction to the session, which put the subject into perspective. Five invited speakers followed, Scott Burnham (Princeton Univeristy), "Theorists and 'The Music Itself'"; Marion A. Guck (Washington Univeristy, St. Louis), "Music Loving, or The Relationship with the Musical Work"; Matthew Brown (Louisiana State University), "Adrift on Neurath's Boat: The Case for a Naturalized Music Theory"; Joseph Dubiel (Columbia Univeristy), "On Getting Deconstructed"; and Kofi Agawu (Yale University), "Analyzing Music under the New Musicological Regime." The first four papers will appear in the next few issues of MTO. Professor Agawu's paper may appear at a later time.
The papers addressed vital matters regarding the ways music theorists think about, define, and carry out the tasks of their discipline. We hope that the papers will stimulate an active and productive dialog through the mto-talk discussion list (email@example.com), and through formal commentaries submitted for publication in MTO. Watch for the first papers to appear in volume 2.1 (January, 1996).

8. Copyright Statement +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Overview: 1. Retrieving MTO Items (with mto-serv, FTP, and through WWW) 2. Subscribing to MTO 3. Retrieving MTO Documentation 4. Queries and Communications
1. RETRIEVING MTO ITEMS
MTO FileServer Items are retrieved by sending an email message to the MTO FileServer, mto-serv, or through anonymous FTP (see below). To use the FileServer, send a message to one of the following two addresses:
Leave the "Subject:" line blank and as the body of the message include the following lines (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
path YourEmailAddress (Bitnet addresses *must* include .BITNET) send Item (specify item, as listed below) send Item (additional "send" lines, if desired)
After the word "path," enter your full email address (Bitnet users must include .BITNET). Be *sure* to include the word "path" followed by a valid email address. Without the "path" line, mto-serv will not know where to deliver requested items. To retrieve items from the *current* issue of MTO, after the word "send," replace "Item" with the one of the following options:
articles (= main article[s]) gifs (= musical examples) reviews (= review[s]) commentaries (= commentaries on past MTO articles) dissertations (= dissertation listings) announcements (= announcements) jobs (= job listings) package (= all the above items, in a single package) toc (= current table of contents)
path email@example.com send package
********************************************************************** CAUTIONARY NOTE: Subscribers with restricted emailbox space should be careful when using the "package" option. A full issue of MTO, text and musical examples, can be quite large and may "crash" an emailbox of limited size. It may be safer to request a few files at a time, and to remove them from the emailbox before requesting more files. **********************************************************************
For instructions on retrieving items from back issues, or complete back issues of MTO, consult the document "mto-guide.txt" (see below, on retrieving MTO documentation).
FTP MTO items may also be retrieved through anonymous FTP. The site is: smt.ucsb.edu. An alternate FTP site is located at the University of North Texas: smtftp.acs.unt.edu. Use "anonymous" as loginID and your email address as password. Change to the directory pub/mto/issues/mto.yy.v.i (where yy = last two digits of the current year, v = volume number, and i = issue number) with the command: cd pub/mto/issues/mto.yy.v.i. The file mto.current contains all items constituting the current issue; toc.current is the most recent table of contents. The individual items of the current issue have filenames that begin as follows: mto.yy.v.i, where "yy" is the last two digits of the current year; "v" is the current volume number; and "i" is the current issue number (example: mto.94.0.6). Refer to the MTO Guide for further information.
GOPHER The address of the MTO gopher site is: smt.ucsb.edu The initial menu includes an option for MTO. An alternate gopher site is at the University of North Texas: smtgopher.acs.unt.edu
WWW MTO also has a World-Wide Web page. The URL is:
Follow the links to the current or past issues.
2. SUBSCRIBING TO MTO To subscribe to MTO, send an email message to one of the following "listproc" addresses:
Leave the "Subject:" line blank and as the text of the message include the following single line (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
subscribe mto-list YourFirstName YourLastName
You will receive a message confirming your subscription. Once the subscription is confirmed, to receive the MTO Guide send a message to one of the "listproc" addresses shown above, and as the body of the message include the single line: information mto-list
To cancel a subscription, send the following single line to one of the "listproc" addresses (not to mto-serv!): unsubscribe mto-list
[NOTE: Do not send email to the "listproc" addresses for anything other than initiating and terminating subscriptions to MTO. Further, do not send email to mto-list@boethius. mto-list is solely for broadcasting MTO to its subscribers, *not* for communication among subscribers, nor for retrieving MTO items (done with mto-serv), nor for communication with the Editor (address above). Please do not send mail to mto-list@boethius, *nor* use a "reply" command on email distributed through mto-list.]
3. RETRIEVING MTO DOCUMENTATION Several MTO explanatory documents are available through mto-serv:
mto-guide.txt (the MTO Guide, also retrievable from "listproc") Instructions for a. subscribing to MTO b. retrieving MTO items (articles, reviews, commentaries, musical examples, and figures) c. posting items in MTO (announcements, jobs, dissertations) d. searching the MTO database authors.txt Guidelines for authors policy.txt MTO editorial policy software.txt List of available software (IBM and Mac) for MTO subscribers, and instructions for retrieving the software mto.index List of all files in the MTO archive (updated regularly)
To retrieve any of these documents, send an email message to one of the "mto-serv" addresses (not to the "listproc" addresses!), and use the format shown above ("path" line with full email address, and one or more "send" lines specifying the desired document[s]). For example, to retrieve the document called "software.txt," address a message to mto-serv and as the body of the message include only the following two lines (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
path firstname.lastname@example.org (Bitnet addresses must include .BITNET) send software.txt send authors.txt (additional "send" lines for more items)
The words "path" (followed by an email address) and "send" (followed by the desired item) *must* appear.
