Many special thanks go to...

Naomi Zeitz, Leela Whitcomb-Hewitt, Andrea Lawrence, Gerry Steinberg, Lauri Marder, Dr. Phuntsog Wangmo, and everyone at Tsegyalgar and Shang Shung Institute, for offering their time and for welcoming me with open hearts.

Jason Robinson, Jeffers Engelhardt, and my Pioneer Valley Soundscapes classmates, for their guidance and for making this productive learning environment possible.

Amherst College, Academic Technology Services (especially John Kunhardt, Peter Marvin, Marcus DeMaio, and Dave Moran), and the Center for Community Engagement (especially Sarah Barr and Zoe Jacobs), for being endlessly helpful in providing institutional support for this and all of our projects.
