Saturday February 23rd 2008 – Sunset at Alfresco’s on the beach
We had hoped for a glorious sunset ………. but we did get the starlings swooping over West Pier.
The gathering on Saturday was beautiful. All you people with a connection to Joe’s life in Brighton were a testament to how he built up and lived his life there.
He found such joy in his time at Sussex University as a student and researcher and as a Developer at what was then called the Runtime Collective, which we have come to believe was set up, with its unusual philosophy, especially to provide a perfect niche for Joe!
Our memories of Joe in Brighton glow. Through hearing anecdotes in conversation with you on Saturday we shall think about, talk about and store more memories in our hearts.
We wish to thank Daniel Duquenoy, Graham Forbes, Giles Palmer, Dave Wood and Giles Duffy for their memories shared publicly, Guisseppe and his staff at Alfrescos and Tom Sharp for performing three of Joe’s songs. More of Joe’s songs, probably recorded in his bedroom, can be accessed on http://share.runtime-collective.com/~joe/ropebridge/.
Joe’s last musical venture, recorded in Paris with Vanessa is Krauschanl’s E-waste. We have a few spare copies of this EP so, if you didn’t get one, please e-mail your postal address to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall send you a copy.
Thank you for joining us
Sheila, Geoff, Pat and Emilie.
