brent has been referred to as ‘the godfather of electronic music’ here on vancouver island. his generousity and spirit have touched many, including myself, and i am incredibly sad to say that earlier today brent carmichael passed away. this was just posted on ravevictoria.com:
“As some of you know, Brent Carmichael was having health problems that he kept close for personal reasons. Due to complications of these health issues Brent passed away at 8:25am sept 2nd 2004.
In respect of Brents wishes, there will NOT be a funeral service.
With his approval there will be a celebration of his life at a later date.
This is not a joke. I, David Tillson, Brents friend for 25 years am writing this on Brents roomate Ians pc.[ if you so need comfirmation ]
The end of Brents life was witnessed by myself and 4 of Brents closest friends. We have tried to phone and contact many people in person, we apologise to those who we could not reach.
‘We love you Brent’
