"It is not enough to merely wish for a different world. It is the
obligation of the individual to direct the present and shape the future.
The creation and maintenance of Smith Publications and Sonic Art Editions is my contribution and partial solution to the problem of creating a healthy and receptive environment for new musical ideas.
Publishing makes public the values, sounds, and esthetics not only of the composer, but also of the publisher who selects the compositions and edits them for publication.
With all this in mind, I Choose the strongest, most far-reaching music I can find--music that balances originality and uniqueness with the skill and craft necessary to clearly express the essence of its idea."
Sylvia Smith, Editor
