Oh I'm sorry to hear about that. I had only recently discovered him last year, when I got an album called "Wet Dreams" where he credited his name as Kerrisma.

As confirmed by his partner:

Still remember buying his self-released Cathedral vinyl at Boudisque, Amsterdam when it just got released (we're talking 1983).

May he rest in peace.

Very, very sorry to hear this -- John was one of the first makers of electronic music I met personally, and who inspired me very much to become active as well. He even inspired my (early) setup of instruments to an extent that I also (still) have a Roland Vocoder Plus, a Yamaha CS50, a TR-808, and an RE-501...

He was a very kind and generous man, and I will always remember him for that.

Thank you so much, John -- Reflections and Citadel will always be seminal albums to me.

Stephen

Sad news. May he rest in peace.
His last album was a requiem (2018).

John was suffering for a long time. But in late years he was very active and was very positive as he could in his difficult health situation. He has done his best to go away like a star on high note. He is awesome! Now he can rest and relax in peace! Sweet dreams, John!
