RIP, EPHRAIM ALEXANDER

Seattle producer Ephraim Alexander (AKA Terso, Techne, and Porceline [the latter with vocalist Heather Elsa/Lady K]) passed away July 21 from diabetes complications. One of this city’s staunchest supporters of electronic music (and a wicked dancer, too), Alexander was also making extraordinary strides with his own techno and drum ‘n’ bass productions. Alexander described his music thus: “I like to dance, so a lot of the tunes are dance oriented. I enjoy Cinema, so some of the music is cinematic. I like booty, so all the tunes are booty.”Ł
His good friend Zach Smith recorded Alexander’s February 7 set opening for Safety Scissors at Oscillate; you can hear it here. Check it out: it’s a mighty impressive epitaph.
An endless source of positive energy and one of the nicest individuals in Seattle’s thriving electronic-music scene, Alexander touched many people with his generous spirit and musical talent. He will be intensely missed.
