I attended NYU from 1998 to 2000 to earn a Master’s of Music in Music Technology, going through the Tonmeister sequence of coursework. I took my education at NYU a lot more seriously than I had taken my education at Cornell; at NYU, though, I did not really have the same quality of academic guidance and teaching as I had at Cornell. The net effect is that the writing is more mature but on the other hand perhaps suffers from a lack of insight. I did have the benefit of increased computing power as well as the benefit of the internet being much more pervasive. Anyway, here are the writings from that era:
