The man's troubles seem to have been of his own making, entrapment or not (and his lawyers didn't bother arguing entrapment in court). I don't really fault anyone for their deviant interests, and I understand how a person could end up in his position, but acting as he did still crosses a significant line.

His music continues to be an immeasurable influence on me, as is his creative persistence, with the majority of his work over the last five decades made in relative obscurity. Deepest thanks to Rabih Beaini for revealing Charles Cohen's work to a wider audience, and etching it into a more enduring physical medium.

He was a genius in improvisation. His amazing work introduced me to the Easel.
I'm very happy I could see him live a few years ago and briefly speak with him.

Glad I got to see him a few times in Philadelphia

Ditto. And thanks for Rabih's picture.

I was lucky to be around for most of those decades of obscurity. He played all kinds of shows, off the radar basement shows, a Gothic church, facing a sphinx in a museum. One piece of advice: "Play everyday."

I will miss him.

Here is a short clip of he and I playing a show together from 2009:



And a direct recording of that show:

And two other jams we recorded in his apartment from the last time I visited him in 2013:

Kaddish for Charles Cohen - Artists often have flaws in their personal lives but the art is what endures. Rest in peace.

Very sad news. His amazing music lives on and will continue to inspire me—as it will all of us.

and Woody Allen and Balthus and Picasso and the Eagles (!) and just about a million other creators - you can't f-em all...

Well this is very sad and disturbing on a whole lot of levels. Leaving his personal proclivities aside he was an innovator and unique voice with his knowledge and approach to Buchla and the Easel. Bleeps and Bloops no more from Charles....RIP

F**K Charles Cohen.

He is still an incredible artist and musician. I think people need to separate personal lives of the creators and their art.
Also, saying such a things about person who recently died is not just ill-mannered, it just shows how much of an asshole you are.

I don’t care what you think of me.

I’ll take back my coarse final comment, out of respect for the feelings of anyone who knew Charles personally.

I won’t take back my dismay at the eulogising of a man who committed the crimes he did and I find myself unable to separate the man from the art.
