  3. Dear Renée – would you be willing to talk with me about a book project I’m putting together on musical minimalism in NYC between the mid-‘60s to mid-‘90s, with a substantial focus on Julius Eastman? Be good to get your take on some things specific to him, if at all possible. Best wishes, and thanks in advance. Ryan H.
