there is this wonderful blind electronic music composer named pauline anna strom about whom i was preparing a piece for my blog recently. doing a little research online i stumbled across a photo of my friend hannes grassegger, a noted swiss business journalist and net theorist – a serious cat really, but also a music lover – holding up strom’s extremely rare record trans-millenia consort. i was stunned and wondering about the story behind that image. so i reached out for hannes and it turned out to be one of these really intimate emotional stories which oftentimes stand behind those records we love the most. enjoy!
