Tony Conrad




I have just heard about the passing of Tony Conrad - filmmaker and musician/composer.  I listen to his music on a regular basis, especially while I'm writing.  I met him once at the Filmmaker's Anthology, and I can say that both of us were working in the same room at the same time.  Separate projects yes, yet I was there in that room with him.  As he was editing a film, he would often hum very loudly.   2016 has been a tragic year of major figures in my life, who are disappearing on this planet.  

You can hear one of his many masterpieces here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGMnDcwoXns
