IN HONOR OF OUR VERY OWN PAUL WAKEFIELD (EmptyGlass) R.I.P. If you wish to participate in a tribute project we've got one set up here: http://https://www.kompoz.com/music/collaboration/747413 All ideas are welcome, seps of Paul's original and remake versions are also available for use. There are some really unique and special ideas happening over there so stop by if you will and contribute or just celebrate the life of one really great member of our community. Oh, how Paul believed in soo many of us here on Kompoz. He pushed himself and others to perfect their artistry with no excuses...all for the sake of music. A beautiful thing, indeed. Here is a rendition of one fantastic song Paul wrote. Rx at the helm with Pascal and Chad. Humbly interpreted by me...for you, Paul. Written by the powerful and late Paul Wakefield (EmptyGlass) I Do It For You....

Why not create a project, in which everyone and everyone could deposit a spin-off of a Paul song ? komposer can play on or create a spin-offs. It could be a tribute ''concert'' to Paul . tribute Paul Project. I Do It For You.... can be the first uploaded to start this.

I remember my first encounter with Paul....it was not a good one....but we later became very good friends after getting to know one another. I will miss him and his contributions to Kompoz dearly. I am grateful he has not been forgotten!

sriracha   commented 2yr+8mo ago


how so, Ed? Paul passed away a short while ago. A friend of his posted it up here on kompoz, but I guess a lot of folks missed it then. I seems some recent facebook posting surfaced it again and more people noticed.

EdSilva   commented 2yr+8mo ago


Sad... I didn't know... He did have a personality and that personality kind of transcended into my Kompoz experience. Just the thought that he and I will never scuffle again is kind of hard to swallow. Kompoz sure won't be the same. At least for me. He would always push my buttons and then fire some torpedoes at me behind the scenes. At first, I used to hate him, then as time passed I learned to just play along but sometimes I would snap at him. Again... To me, it was part of my Kompoz experience. Mellon passing was a big deal too. He and I were tight behind the scenes. The complete opposite than Paul and I but still... I am pretty sad. I had not been here for a while and now this...

EdSilva   commented 2yr+8mo ago


I can't believe what I am reading. When did this happen? Man. WTF? He and I never saw eye to eye. If my memory serves me right he was even banned for a little while and then I kind of missed him. I mean... He was kind of what Kompoz was all about. I did like his stuff. I just can't believe this. I am deeply saddened. We were not on the best of terms the last time we spoke and that was at least two years ago but it was far from the worst and lowest our relationship had ever been. This sucks! It's first Mellon, now Paul. This really sucks. Do people not understand? No one is supposed to die in Kompoz without permission.

"take his ball and go home..." LOL Classic! That was Paul alright. I'm glad I got to meet him. I can't believe how hurt I was to read this post. I sure as hell was hoping it was some kind of stunt to piss him off.

Paul was one of those guys that you look back and say "thank God I knew him." No matter what differences you had . . . we all have differences with each other now and then. Fact is, he is one of the first people here to truly help me grow as a lyricist - I might have given up on writing without what he did for my words. I wish I had knew him longer. If we had lived in the same time period, in the same place, I feel we would have been ever better friends! The music lives on! R.I.P. my dear friend . . .

Ya know...Paul could've rubbed me the wrong way if I were insecure and overly-sensitive with a tune I was working on that he was not fond of in my approach...he came to me and said...you could sing that different, even better with a different approach. I obliged only out of challenge and it turned out to be something quite interesting. We later became friends, respecting one another's talents and then he opened up one day and told me of this tune "I Do It For You"...we shared an interesting moment of story and emotion that is this very song to him. He was quite inspired and provoked by emotion by my take. I really respected him and call him my friend. I'm happy we are here sharing thoughts and memories. I should only be so lucky when I'm gone.

It really is tragic news about Paul! He truly was a gifted person! He wrote a song for me that we never got round to finishing because I wasn't able to work fast enough for him, but I am going to try my best to finish that song in honour of his name! It's a wonderful idea to honour his name & your tribute is lovely! May he R.I.P forever!

The good or bad memories make sure the character to touch kompoz. We are all characters here, but behind the characters there are humans. Our character can be wicked, arogant, sarcastic, friendly, funny ... it remains that in a moment like that , we must remember the human who created the character. Behind a hard character its ofter a very soft person.

I haven't been here for awhile and am shocked to hear he passed away. Paul and I didn't see eye to eye on a lot of things but I deeply respected his music and talent. His music will live on forever.

I've been away from this community for a while now. My phone has been blowing up with notifications on this tune for the past week. I just popped in to see what was up. So sad to hear this news. It has been a true honor to have brushed elbows with Paul and to have had shared music with him. What I love about this community is that we are all for the most part, complete strangers but, in the process of creating music we cannot help but, to show our most intimate thoughts and feelings. I think we show sides of ourselves that we don't share with our normal everyday crowds. A free place to express ourselves. I feel Paul loved this idea and shared a lot of himself to us as we did with him. Thank you Paul for sharing with us and for allowing us to share with you. You have a passion for music and expression that is not easily matched my friend. May your melody continue. See you on the other side. RIP Paul. your friend Chad (Shellofme).

Just as a point of interest. If you want a deadline to get your project finished ... I recall it coming up in a conversation with Paul that he shared his birthday with St George's Day, here in the UK. April 23rd. Maybe that could give you a target as it is only 3 weeks off?

My father in-law is from Salford and was telling me about this beautiful Lowery theatre . Knowing that Paul was also from that area, I asked him if he knew anything about it... In part... "The Lowry Theater is still there and I have actually worked on the roof of it. We also got told off, by a guy there, for using a room there, to get on the roof. He went mad at us, all because there was a sketch in that room, of a skeleton, that was drawn by L.S. Lowry and he told us it was worth a Million pounds. Now, if only we had known that, before?" Thanks Paul and RIP

He was definitely a dedicated soul and worked very hard on giving his best to any collaboration. we did not always click when it came to collaborating, but I had a great deal of respect for his dedication to a project. May he Rest in Peace.

So sad to hear this! Paul was one of the kindest people to me here on Kompoz. He wrote really nice things to me. We never worked together on a kompoz project but it made me really happy that he appriciated one of my songs and that he took the time to write and tell me about that. I remember him writing on the forum that he couldn't sing anymore and that he wouldn't collaborate on any more projects becase of that. R.I.P Paul.
