about

All sound waves propagate forever. When you play or perform the music of someone who's passed, you help them ride their own waves into the great beyond.

This track was my contribution to the 66th weekly Disquiet Junto series, whose theme was “posthumous collaboration”: communing through music. It is a tribute to the late Jeffrey Melton, the talented musician, best known on SoundCloud and Twitter as @nofi. Melton passed away on March 30, 2013, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he lived with his wife and seven-year-old son. He was 42. Jeffrey was one of my first mutual-follows on SoundCloud. I admired and absorbed a lot of his work and we shared laughs a few times on Twitter. I feel lucky to have had even the most cursory electronic interaction with him.
