Dear Friend,

We are thingNY, a collective of composer-instrumentalists based in New York City. On Saturday, December 19, 2009, we will be presenting a concert called SPAM, based on responses we get to this very email. Congratulations! If you’re reading this email, you’ve been selected to write us some music – even if you’ve never written music before. It could be a few words, a notated score, a set of instructions, a drawing, a video of your dog, your favorite photo of Leonard Nimoy, or anything else you can imagine. It could even be something that takes a second or two to perform.

Please send your new work to or post on our blog and be sure to include your name and where you’re from. Any reply that we receive by Saturday, November 19th has the potential to be included in whole or in part. You are, of course, welcomed and encouraged to attend the performance, which will be held at the University of the Streets in New York City. Please forward this email to your friends, family, and acquaintances – let’s make this a great show! We look forward to receiving your composition, and we promise we will do our best to satisfy your artistic desires.

Best wishes,

Paul, Jeff (violin), Isabel (cello), Gelsey (vocals), Erin (saxophone), Alejandro (clarinet)
