    Hey Stephen! I hope you get this. Can we make some revisions to the last paragraph of my program notes? See below - just replace. "In 1993, eight months before taking his own life, Kurt Cobain, lead singer of the famed Seattle grunge band Nirvana, gave an interview and stated that Patrick Süskind’s book Perfume was a book that he read frequently, and that it continuously haunted him. The book recounts the life of perfume apprentice in France in the 18th century with an exceptional sense of smell. The protagonist struggles to find his own place in the world, and is unable to form normal loving bonds with other people. His awkward and peculiar manner, and hyperosmia drive him to create the ultimate perfume, resulting in murder and ultimately his own early demise. My piece Perfume borrows the Süskind title, and uses portions of the audio from Cobain’s interview. All the audio in this piece is sampled and manipulated from the music of Nirvana and Cobain’s voice. Perfume was written for pianist Thomas Rosenkranz, in memory of Kurt Cobain and the music of Nirvana." Thank you!

    Ugh, so I found another typo..... Sorry! Here's another version...
