... I think he is a remarkable musician, a true innovator, a gifted individual that knows the difference between style and substance, a visionary that can push both to the limits if he so desires... if you were to just sit down and listen to his music, watch what he has to say, you'll quickly realize that his work has a mind and a will of its own...

... in case you didn't know, Brian Transeau's current work "This Binary Universe" was recently showcased in a deviantART-sponsored tour in late 2006 where he teamed up with 80's icon Thomas Dolby and performed in 24 major American cities as promoted in this major devART news article from last winter...

... in case you didn't know, he was recently robbed of his artistic belongings valued at more than $150,000...

... for over a decade, BT has been internationally recognized as a consummate composer and a leader in progressive electronica, often nicknamed "the father of trance" based upon his Wikipedia entry... he holds an incredible resume of film scores (see IMDb for a complete listing) and is recognized for his musical contributions to such films as Go (1999), Under Suspicion (2000), Driven (2001), The Fast and the Furious (2001), Stealth (2005), and especially the score to Monster (2003) with Charlize Theron and Christina Ricci which garnered him worldwide acclaim...

... last August, BT (best known to this community as BT011010 ) joined deviantART prior to launching his 2006 tour where more than 600 deviants had their artwork displayed at his performances... I'm a huge fan of BT's work and felt it necessary to link an entry that Brian posted on his personal website where he detailed the tragedy from last January and declared a massive amount of equipment stolen from his studio, including many instruments and the entire computer system used to store and generate the visual art for his "This Binary Universe" performances...

... if you've ever been robbed (and I certainly have) you will realize that this is a devastating blow to any artist/performer, especially if the tools of your artform that you live for have suddenly been ripped away from you... as you read his blog you can tell he has accepted it with some suggestion of grace although the word "priceless" rings with a certain pain attached to it...

... had I known about this sooner I certainly would've written this sooner, but I wasn't aware of this loss until I caught his full-page ad in the March issue of Keyboard magazine... my hope in writing this is that some of our 40+ million membership from the largest online artist community in the world could possibly offer this influential artist and composer a bit of support when he needs it most...

... he is, after all, one of us...

The Hartmann Neuron is especially expensive. =( And it's discontinued now.
Hope he gets back his gear, and more importantly his hard work.

... I'm broken-hearted at the lousy response and thought more people would've cared... maybe I was being naive when I wrote it and should let this fade away into its own pseudo-Digg universe... :(

This really stinks and I wish him the best at finding the ones responsible. This is being violated on so many different levels. I have been a victim of theft too and it hurts your soul.

I'd donate money, but i have none, and no means.
