More people than ever have been listening to computer music--whether they know it or not. "Computer music has infiltrated the pop and film scenes," composer Peter Terry notes. "They're really driven by it. Except for the voice, which they can't synthesize yet, almost everything else is computer music." But, Terry says, computers remain on the fringes of the classical music scene, their potential largely unfulfilled.

Unless a living composer is a superstar or at least has some renown, entire programs of his or her music often can present problems. Sometimes, the music might not be consistently good enough for an entire concert. Other times, the event could be no more than an act of vanity, none of the music particularly worth sitting through.

The disputed British colony of Gibraltar will hold a general election March 24, the governor, Peter Terry, announced Friday. The election will be the first chance for the territory's 13,000 voters to have a say on Anglo-Spanish talks on the future of the militarily strategic Rock, claimed by Spain but in British hands since 1704.

Security forces in Gibraltar, the British colony at the southern tip of Spain, shot to death three suspected Irish Republican Army guerrillas. The three--two men and a woman--planned a bomb attack on a changing-of-the-guard ceremony Tuesday involving a British army regiment that had served in Northern Ireland a year ago, officials said.

Surgeons worked through the night to save a former governor of Gibraltar wounded in a hail of bullets fired at his home by suspected Irish nationalist guerrillas. One surgeon said today they removed three bullets and "literally dozens" of bullet fragments from Air Chief Marshal Sir Peter Terry, who as Gibraltar's governor approved a controversial commando operation in which three unarmed Irish Republican Army guerrillas were killed.

With one, possibly two exceptions, each of the six works on Thursday's opening concert of the Pacific Contemporary Music Festival at Cal State L.A. relied heavily--too heavily--on one musical element: timbre. In his Quintet, Donald Erb deserves high marks for skillfully combining the instrumental timbres of violin, cello, flute, clarinet and piano/synthesizer. He also asks the players to hum, pluck the piano strings, play a pitch pipe and rub water-filled glasses. Alas, that is not enough to sustain a piece having so little dramatic contrast.

The Pacific Contemporary Music Festival is going on the road this year, with four concerts in Korea next month. A concert by the California E.A.R. Unit Friday at the Cal State Los Angeles Music Hall served as a festival prelude, however. Actually, the industrious E.A.R. Unit--which appeared in concert at the County Museum of Art the week before and is a mainstay of the Ojai Festival next weekend--had relatively little to do as an ensemble.

Attempting to spread the wealth, officials of Southeast San Diego's most ambitious industrial and commercial project Monday urged minority- and women-owned contracting firms to submit bids on the more than $3 million in public and private construction funds that will be awarded next month for Gateway Center East. Gateway, bordered by Interstate 15 and California 94 along Market Street, is a 130-acre industrial and business complex split into two parks.
