Composer and electronic artist Pauline Anna Strom has died at age 74. The sad news came via Matt Werth of RVNG, who are set to release Pauline's first new record in three decades in early 2021. Werth referred to Pauline as an "extraordinary vessel of sound." Read his tribute below.
Pauline was born blind in 1946. Raised on classical music in the South, she moved to San Francisco as an adult, discovered synthesizers, and began composing new age and ambient music. Her first album was 1982's Trans-Millenia Consort, which was also a name under which she also often worked. Her last new album came out in 1988, and her new album, Angel Tears in Sunlight, is due out February 21. You can watch the video for "Making Time" from that below.
