Chenard Walcker Tribute and Love Letters

Marco of WM Recordings and Weirdomusic.com has passed along the news from Roy "Chicky" Arad that Chenard Walcker, a friend of the online music world, is slowly recovering from a diabetic coma. His brother reports that he is not physically suffering.

Chenard is the prolific visual and musical collage artist who operates the Free Sample Zone with 58 releases available for download (including one for Oddio Overplay.) So many of us have benefited from Chenard's work. This is our chance to repay our sweet friend and to send him our love.

"Chenard Walcker is the self-proclaimed Pope of samplecore, or, to put it simply, of musical cut-n-paste. Within a few years, he became a legend in the netlabel scene thanks to his prolific and virtuoso collages." -- official site

The last time I heard Chenard speak was last year for a get-well-soon radio show put together by Oddio Overplay and Shirley and Spinoza Radio for Otis Fodder.

Let's put together something of love and thanks for Chenard. Roy Chicky Arad [bio] has suggested a tribute album, and WM Recordings is organizing now to host it. It might also be simultaneous hosted elsewhere on the web.

So start making your songs, coloring your greeting cards and making your collages for Chenard now!

All responses should be directed to Marco.
