Another significant member of the electronic music community , John Simonton, Jr., founder of PAiA Electronics died on November 25, 2005. John was a good friend and someone who shared my background in the nuts and bolts of hardware and software design from which musical creativity could be coaxed. John's obituary on the PAiA site is here. Marvin Jone's, one of PAiA's lead designers and first editor of Polyphony/Electronic Musician magazine's remembrances are found here. A few of mypictures and comments are on a separate page.
