Hector Zazou: 1948—2008

Hector Zazou has left the planet:

French composer Hector Zazou died yesterday (September 8), aged 60.
Zazou, who fell seriously ill earlier this year, was a producer and collaborator who fused classical influences with electronic music.
He worked with the likes of Bjork, Siouxsie Sioux and Japan's David Sylvian during his thirty-two-year career.
His most recently completed album, 'In The House Of Mirrors', is due for release imminently.
A spokesperson from his label Crammed, said: "He will be hugely missed."

And of course he worked with John Cale who did the vocals First Evening on the Sahara Blue album( 1994) and The Long Voyage - a duet with Suzanne Vega on the album Songs From the Cold Seas (1995).
