Passing of a friend

Post by freightgod » Tue Mar 05, 2019 1:30 pm

Some of you will remember fellow forum member Harry Robinson ... le&u=13714. A few of us collaborated with him on a couple projects.

I had shared a recording with him at Christmas time and was surprised not to have heard a response, as he was always quick with a thumbs-up, even if what I was doing wasn't particularly very good!

I received word from his wife last week that he passed away suddenly this last August.

When I heard from him last in June he had just obtained his commercial drone pilot certification. He sent me this link to some test footage which I thought was very beautiful. He was going to head out into the prairie grass soon after, and I asked him to send me some video to write something to, but it never happened.

He was very active in his community, I know he provided sound for his local theater group.

I never made it to Oklahoma to meet him although I had a standing invite, but I feel like I knew him anyway through our music. I am grateful that his wife Allie Rose was able to track me down, and I told her I would pass the sad news along here. He is missed.

I didn’t get the opportunity to know or communicate with Harry, but it sounds like he was a very nice gentleman, so this is sad to hear... my condolences.

I wasn't around when he's active in this forum, but I ran into his tracks on Soundcloud when I was looking for music made using Mixcraft.

Many beautiful, well-produced pieces here:
