    To whom it concerns,

    I am a student at Letterkenny IT in Ireland, undertaking an MA in Motion Graphics. As part of my final year studies, I am researching various aspects of the music video industry. In support of this, I would like to interview professionals from different musical backgrounds and would welcome greatly your participation.

    I would be very appreciative if you could take a few minutes to answer the following questions:

    1. Do advancements in today’s technologies impact on the relationship between musician and audience?

    2. What impact do these technological changes have on Classical music?

    3. Does video play a role in the popularisation of classical music?

    4. Have you or would you ever consider applying video to your musical compositions?

    Many thanks,
    Yours sincerely,

    Ausra
