Site update
Spruced up the typography (thank you Font Squirrel) and replaced the old audio player with a new Flash-free HTML5 version (John Dyer's MediaElement.js). Audio is now accessible on mobile devices. Huzzah! Update: Also refreshed the Elliott Carter on the web page (and added a link to the papers from the conference "Hommage à Elliott Carter. Des ponts vers l'Amérique II" in Paris, December 2008). Update 2: Added a favicon.
