I came to know Tim several years back through music. We were part of a monthly "Corvallis Composer's Guild" - really just a rag-tag group of us that shared our works, methods, and encouraged each other. I think that group lasted about 3 months but it was still a nice time.
Tim shared some of his production techniques with me and still to this day whenever I mix drums I recall how Tim did his. He shared with me some of his early versions of his Oregon Trail suite and I was very impressed and proud of him for following his dream.
We were all handed beautiful flowers at the memorial - well, I think dandelions are beautiful - but these were a mix of sun flowers and other field flowers. Perfect for fall. Mine's wilting now even though I'm trying in vain to keep it going in a cup of water.
I've got a little bon-bon of an arrangement of a traditional Mexican folk song on my plate called De Colores. It's just a simple song that pays tribute to the wonder of colors. I'll dedicate it to Tim. Now I just have to finish it...and I will.
