Review of The Graceful Art of Breaking Up

A terrific little piece that tackles the appropriate protocol for breaking up. IM'ing is out; e-mail is only slightly less bad. The work moves nicely; interesting use of sonic treatment to distinguish the various source voices in the story. The tie-in with Valentine's Day makes sense, but people break up every day -- I would urge the producer to write a closing line that doesn't suggest Valentine's Day.
