Obit here.

“Don’t worry, I’m fine, I think :-) but remember we are all only temporary curators of our present bodies, which will all decay, sooner or later. In a hundred years or so ALL the humans currently alive will have died. I take great comfort in knowing, with certainty, that thing that makes us special, able to enrich our own lives and those of others, will not cease when our bodies do, but will be just starting and new (and hopefully even better) adventure… If we don’t get to meet in this Life, maybe in the next you can buy me a beer! ,-)”

-Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson

Philippines: Palawan Highlands Music
Love Songs and The Tiny Music of Things
Le Chant du Monde LP, 1987 (recorded 1972-1983)

Beautiful set of recordings from the Philippines. The first side, “Love Songs” contains slow, buzzing folk songs recorded in thick ambience. The second side, labeled “The Tiny Music of Things” by the recordist, contains musical representations of the sounds of the Palawan natural world. My 320 rip and sleeve/booklet photos.
