During my dental work, I listened to Mog dot com on my cell phone. I set it to play works of A Produce, who recently passed away. His work is what I would call melodic light ambient with percussive world music touches, but he apparently termed himself a trance artist. I did not know him before he passed on, though for a time when I spent time on Hypnos Forum, I knew about him. I owned a CD or so of his. I enjoyed hearing his songs very much--combined with the nitrous oxide, they helped make the situation less solemn.
This evening I learned that ccMixter artist Fireproof Babies also passed away--he was far too young. His music was inventive and versatile. I did not know him well--I mostly enjoyed his music. It's a time when passings and the ephemeral nature of things appears more vividly to me.
