Dear Macro members,

I hope all of you are having a nice summer!

1. Musician's Workshop 2012
The dates for the next Musician's Workshop are set for 2012. We will meet on June 15-16. It's not too early to start thinking about topics and potential presentations for the event! Contact Jamie Henke at any time via email

2. Musical Insights, our MACRO Journal
We have several wonderful papers that have recently been published on our web site, but are still looking for a few more before printing the next volume, and we are always interested in submissions for future journals. The Macro Analysis Creative Research Organization (MACRO) invites musicians of all disciplines to submit manuscripts for publication consideration in Musical Insights, the Journal of the Macro Analysis Creative Research Organization. Topics regarding any aspect of macro analysis and/or its application in music research, education, performance, theory, history, and composition are welcomed.

A blind review will be made of all manuscripts by the MACRO editorial board, therefore submissions should include:
• three (3) copies of the manuscript void of any identification information
• a cover letter that identifies both the author and the manuscript title

Authors are requested to submit manuscripts in the following format:
• typewritten or computer printed on 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper
• double-spaced throughout (including block quotations and footnotes)
• all notes appearing as footnotes
• limited to 20 pages (shorter manuscript lengths are preferred)

Please be advised that articles in Musical Insights are required to employ the macro analysis system. Although other analytical systems may be included in Musical Insights articles, the use of the macro analysis system must be evident. Authors will be asked to provide camera-ready copies of musical examples, charts, diagrams, etc.

Manuscript submissions are accepted at all times.

Submissions should be addressed to:
Dr. Marilyn Saker
Department of Music and Dance
N101 Alexander Music Building
Eastern Michigan University
Ypsilanti, MI 48197

Special thanks to Marilyn Saker for her dedication to this project!

Best wishes!
