    Excellent electronic composer, whose first album in 30 years is due this coming February.

    If you're actually reading this then chances are you already have my last album but if NOT and you're curious:

    I never heard of her. I do like the song from the new cd.

    Man... I wasn't expecting that. I bought Trans​-​Millenia Music on the sunburst vinyl a few years ago. Very sorry to hear she's gone.

    Aw, sheesh. That's a bummer. Looking forward to the new (now posthumous) album.

    I bought her first release from Eurock on vinyl, "Trans Millenium Consort", in 1982 when it was first released on the Ether Ship record label. Listening to the tracks above, I recall liking her sound a lot. It was definitely moving (like most electronic music) into the "New Age" territory, but hers was delicate yet interesting in a floating type of way. Her album was sold when I moved away from vinyl, however it's good to relive it with some of the samples above.

    Been a fan for years. Although her solitary life was a personal choice, I always felt it overlaid her music with a fragile melancholy. She was very creative but never really got the recognition she deserved. This is a sad loss.
