April 9, 2016 - Network stalwart Thomas M. Cassidy aka Musicmaster is such a presence that he requires no introduction to most IUOMA friends. For the diligent Tenderfoots who are not yet MM initiates, you will be well-rewarded indeed to learn more about him starting here:

Thomas M. Cassidy is extremely versatile and, in my estimation, has done especially notable work in visual poetry, performance art and collaborations of various kinds. He sent me a generous sampling of vispo in a format that might be considered ATCs. The ephemera he included, such as the event score above, adds another dimension to this superb mail assemblage.

Thanks, Jason.

Look for Cassidy collabs w/ John M. Bennett, if you haven't already seen them. They turn up on FB. Those are among my faves.

Thx William, Musicmaster is a huge mail art figure just not an IUOMA members as far as I can see so maybe not so widely known on this platform. However, he collabs w/ folks who are members.
