Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: Moral debate about making collaboration albums with a dead person ???« on: Today at 01:27:53 PM »
For me it would depend on the circumstances of each case - the last recording I did with Oophoi is still waiting for release. Gigi also sent me a set of minidiscs and personally asked me to keep his music alive after he was gone - a project I've yet to get round to acting on anywhere near as fully as I would have liked to.
I to am in a similar situation but with A Produce. Barry the last few years made a bunch of unfinished tracks that he would just send to his musical friends for them to use or mess with if they felt like it. Several of us at one point talked about maybe doing a collaborative CD where we each did a track using that material. Also, I have maybe 20 CDs of sounds that Barry made, I could easily make another joint release using the left over sounds he gave me. I have given it some not very serious thoughts about doing that, but that's as far as I have taken it, I haven't really considered the "moral" dilemma except that If decided to do it, to possibly asking his former wife permission.
Muslimgauze is probably the ultimate extreme example of this. He's been dead for 15 years, yet solo and collaborative and remix releases keep popping up. But I have to wonder, this seems more personal, you've posted before about this collaboration before, so I'm going to reserve judgement on this as I don't know the full story as to why you keep bringing this up.
