Michael Shamberg- RIP

Postby schwenko » Fri Nov 07, 2014 4:24 am

from the Other Music mailing list:

"We were deeply saddened when we learned of the loss of Michael H. Shamberg, who passed away Saturday night after a lengthy battle with a highly debilitating mitochondrial disease. A longtime friend of Other Music, Michael was a filmmaker and a close associate of New Order, producing their most acclaimed music videos and running Factory Records' New York office (Of Factory New York) during the '80s, along with countless other creative pursuits including his work with artist Lawrence Weiner, directing independent films like 1998's Souvenir and more recently P.S. Beirut, Chapters 1 & 2, and curating Turtle Salon."
