Music! at the Aether Salon

I had the pleasure and honor of speaking yesterday (Sunday, May 16) at this month's Aether Salon in New Babbage about Victorian and Neo-Victorian Music.

I can now admit that I was utterly terrified.

Yes.  Me.  Miss "I can play for innumerable amounts of listeners and not bat an eyelash".

I was very worried that my presentation would be dreadfully dull, but attendees have assured me that they enjoyed it.


Here is the link to the unedited transcript on the Aether Salon site:
