Laurel Myers Hurst, Kent State University at Geauga, was awarded a $5,000 GRAMMY Foundation Preservation Assistance grant to benefit the El-Dabh Sound Art Project, which enables assessment of the long-term needs of the Halim El-Dabh collection. El-Dabh is a Kent State Professor Emeritus and internationally renowned composer. El-Dabh pioneered the fields of electronic music composition, sound art, ethnomusicological research and black studies. He has retained a vast quantity of audio- and video-recorded concerts and field research.
