john wyre, rest in peace

many of you interested in percussion music may know john wyre, formerly of nexus fame.  i am sorry to say that he passed away on october 31 at his home in st john’s, newfoundland.

there are better people than me qualified to eulogize him, but i did have the chance to work with him as a member of maza mezé a few years back.  we commissioned a piece from him and recorded a number of songs for our “secrets moon magic” CD for CBC.

he was an amazing man, with an incredible outlook on life, and music.  the first lyrics to the piece he wrote for us was “the joy of living/begins by giving/yourself away”.

rest in peace, john wyre.
