Happy 10th birthday, LMJ!

We kickstart our *15th* year in publication with an exclusive fAf-Leonardo Music Journal special. The annual multimedia (print and audio CD) publication of the International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology and the MIT Press is devoted to aesthetic and technical issues in contemporary music and sonic arts.


Take a walk down memory lane with Editor in Chief, Nicholas Collins' personal retrospective: "Ten Years of Leonardo Music Journal" as he recounts his involvement and its growth. LMJ celebrates with online activities, in the Leonardo Electronic Almanac and elsewhere, and with events in East - West Coast U.S.A. A 10-year archive of contributor listings, tables of contents, abstracts, CD content lists and related materials is available on the LMJ site.

This month, we launch Australian artist Di Ball's fAf solo exhibition: "Pink Bits Digifrot". The subject of her artwork is identity where she explores her own flesh and maps various regions of her body with drawing, sketching and digital devices to record these "bits".

"The Quechua Indians of South America believe that we move through life backwards, our faces to the past we know, the future glimpsed over our shoulders. My work is self referential rather than self portraiture. It observes and documents. It maps and moves on," Ball explains.

To continue the series on global art, Marcus Neustetter tells us about New Media Art development in South Africa and Ronald Warunek shares his thoughts on the disappearing print.

Lastly, exclusive to fAf readers, empreintes DIGITALes is kindly offering the 3-CD "British Connection" collection for the price of two @ CAN$50 - just mention fineArt forum Special in the comment area of the order form to take advantage of this special (see below for details).

Happy New Year!
