Hello dear friends,
being a member since 2006, 8 years, I loved working with you. I loved and praised the Garritan products and using them set me on a musical path I never expected to walk. I thank you all for that. We had our disputes, our disagreement, our apologies and all needed for a healthy relationship, a profound friendship. From the deepest of my heart, I thank you all.
But now our paths differ too much. My wife and I agreed upon one thing (at least one thing!) and that is for the time being dismissing all huge and time consuming composing projects. My strengths are weakening and it demands too much effort, sleepless nights, getting up at five in the morning to correct some notes/phrases, etc..... Last year I wasn't able to hear properly for at least three months, a very nasty humming (tinitis), I couldn't hear the music anymore without heavy distortion. No, it wasn't like Beethoven, but since then I must be very careful with those two precious instruments, it had cured miraculously. Now I am facing some physical drawbacks, nothing really serious, but very annoying.
This dude plans to celebrate his 90th birthday........ and with care and rest I can reach that age (20 years to go).
Goodbye my friends,
