RIP Richard Lainhart

On behalf of all of the Ethernet Orchestra, it is with sadness that we reflect on the death of our fellow networked collaborator and musical virtuoso Richard Lainhart, who passed away yesterday 30th December, 2011.

Having worked with him over the years, and then finally meeting him in person last month for the New York show, I personally feel both a sense of loss but also fortune that I was blessed with the opportunity to share his company during the week that I stayed with him and his wife Caroline.

Last night, Martin, Elke and I were looking back on the great performances the ensemble did did this year, and the wonderful experience of the radio feature, which is now all the more poignant in that it unknowingly captured a part of our history that will never be repeated.

As evidenced by the hundreds of obituaries and condolences left on his facebook page, he was deeply respected among a large cross genre musical community and all those that knew him.

RIP Richard, your passion and generosity touched many of us and your music will continue your presence in our lives.
