  • Chris Patton RIP

    I first ran into Chris Patton at NAMM a zillion years ago. He was showing a lightbeam MIDI harp. We talked for a while and discovered that we lived nearby and said we should get together some time, and did, but it's been a while. He's been teaching Music Technology at Maryland University for quite some time, and composing for a lot of local theater groups. Not very well known, but he should have been.

    He sounds like he was a fascinating guy. I'm sorry for his family and friends' loss. It sounds like a rich life, despite his early passing.
