Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: R.I.P. Oophoi
« on: April 12, 2013, 06:00:41 PM »
I only started listening to Oophoi's music about a year ago. I had heard of him prior to this but his music was very elusive to find and expensive through the normal mainstream music channels.

After reading rave reviews of Spirals Of Time I was able to buy a copy through  Hypnos at a bargain price (compared to other sites) and got I hooked on this wondrous ambient masterpiece. Over the ensuing months I managed to collect most of Oophoi's albums and a significant number of these directly from him. We exchanged quite a few emails over the last twelve months and he was always so  generous with his time, discussing his music and sharing anecdotes. Even in the latter stages of his illness he was always prompt to respond to emails and maintained a positive outlook on things.

I was a fan and only swapped emails with him so I can't really say that I was a friend but I wish that I had have been and would have liked to have known this very friendly and generous person better and perhaps I would have in time - but time ran out.

I suffer from a chronic painful medical condition  and many nights I have listened and meditated  to albums like Spirals Of Time and Signals From The Great Beyond and found them very effective in helping to ease the pain

Vale Gigi ... your music has had a profound impact on me and you have left a wonderful legacy of many albums behind for us to listen to and remember you.  We have lost a great talent
