A New Bulletin


Yoder, Carlos, Bulletin of the International Council for Traditional Music


Welcome to a new issue of the Bulletin of the ICTM!

This issue is, as you can see, very different from its previous incarnations, mainly because it's the first one to be distributed exclusively in online form. You can still print it out if you like-just make sure you have enough A4 pages, and use double-sided printing if you can!

At first I wanted to stay faithful to the original format (page size, fonts, layout), but after a few tests it became clear that it would simply not work properly on screen. I consulted with the Secretary General, and he fully supported me in pursuing a new design for the Bulletin, which eventually evolved into what you see here now. However, we did study many previous Bulletins to try to stay close to its roots.

The most important changes are:

* Texts can now be submitted in longer form, since space constraints due to printing costs have been eliminated. However, brevity is always welcome.

* Texts can now be illustrated by pictures. Only a few articles feature pictures in this issue, but we hope this will change in the future.

* All links to Web and e-mail addresses are now clickable.

* All submitted texts were carefully proofread and reformatted when necessary, to keep a cohesive design. I hope our authors will understand the necessity of these changes. The number of mistakes should be small, but by all means, do write and tell me what we missed, and we'll include an errata in the next issue.

* The back cover of the Bulletin used to include a list of ICTM National and Regional Representatives. Since now the idea of a 'back cover' doesn't apply anymore, those two pages were merged into one new section entitled ICTM World Network, which you'll find on page 54.

Svanibor and I will undoubtedly remember this October 2011 Bulletin, as it marks the first important test for the Ljubljana Secretariat. I hope you will find it useful, informative, easy to read, and why not, maybe even beautiful.

I'm really eager to know what you think. Please send me your comments, suggestions and constructive criticism at bulletin-editor@ictmusic.org. Thank you!

The next issue of the Bulletin will be out on the first week of April 2012. See you then!
