Circular email for use for recruitment of volunteers for study ref  
QMREC2009/24, approved by Queen Mary University of London Research  
Ethics Committee. This project contributes to the College's role in  
conducting research and teaching methods. You are under no obligation  
to reply to this email, however if you choose to, participation in  
this research is voluntary and you may withdraw at any time.


We are recruiting participants for a set of experiments to test a  
novel collaborative music-making program we are developing. We are  
looking for composers, musicians and students of Music, Sonic Arts,  
Music Technology or related fields.

For the experiment, you will work in a small group, and will use our  
software to create three short pieces of music, which compliment a  
short video loop we will play to you.

The software we have developed is easy to use, and you will receive  
some training at the start of the session. Remember, we are interested  
in testing the software we have developed, and not your skills as  
musicians or composers.

The experiment will be video taped for analysis purposes, and all  
personal data anonymised. The experiment will be held in room 421 of  
the Computer Science department in Queen Mary University of London,  
and will last approximately 90 minutes.

You will be paid £10 in cash for your participation, and may take away  
the music you create.

Please contact me if you are interested in taking part, or would like  
further details. We are looking to recruit people as soon as possible.
