Hey guys, I noticed our friend and reasontalk superuser Modecca/TeflonTomb seems to have been very quiet of late... he's also deleted all his youtube videos and his own productions from his soundcloud. Does anybody know whether he's ok or is having a creative crisis of some kind?

He is a wizard and not the kind of person to have a creative crisis. Rather, he is finding a better balance between engaging thought and creative projects.

I was wondering the same thing. I wouldn't be surprised if it is some sort of weird artistic statement or something. I mean he is all about experimentation and trying out new ideas. It's a shame though. I would rather have his music and videos available.
Art is for sharing with others, not for keeping to oneself. But I could be way off here.
Maybe it's about something else. Whatever it is I hope he's alright.

I was wondering the same thing about him yesterday, not knowing his channel was empty. He's one of my favorite artists, I hope he's doing well.
If you ain't hip to the rare Housequake, shut up already.

Ok, well, I guess I should reach out to him by email and see if he responds. Thanks all for replying. I'll keep you posted.

Might it be possible he got signed on a major label?

I really appreciate his work too. His creations always makes me smile and enjoy, and I got that feeling he'll end up being the Banksy of musicians.

Deleting excellent work is not a big deal: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sand_mandala

Looking forward to experiencing more of your work Modecca.

Well, I sent him an email a week ago but no reply, so he must really have decided to take himself off the grid for a while. I have to admit feeling slightly miffed that he took offline 2 demo tracks he made for my refills as well as a video review for my Oberon refill. But regardless of that I hope he's ok... I will certainly miss his crazy tracks and videos.

BTW I just remembered he also made a series of really awesome combinators (GNOST) that feature Nostromo being randomized in real time. I guess these devices are also in combinator limbo at the moment. I still have a copy of a few iterations on my HD. Maybe I should forward them to Lectricpanda so he can host them somewhere... but then again he probably also has them.

GNOST is still here, thankfully.

The video found in the article is still up:

Unless you're talking about a different video...

[EDIT] Oh I see it is unlisted. But the youtube link remains the same and works.

Hey, thanks for responding and I'm happy to hear the videolink is still working. I just went on his youtube channel and saw no videos. I didn't know a video could be unlisted.

Still broadcasting random synth noodlings :P obviously, I don't know why I assumed it would also be gone I confess.

Wow. This disturbs me. I hope he's ok. It seems drastic to just remove all videos and no explanation. I do enjoy his sense of humor and his sonic explorations. Many great videos and tracks, now gone. I don't like it. Blessed be, TeflonT.

... now I really want to hear this guy's music. I take it this is satire... I hope it's satire? Teflon sticking it to the vapid establishment music? If not, this is a bit disturbing... perhaps the more endearing side of disturbing (cool remix after all)

I would like to share a quick haiku poem I wrote about Teflon Tomb.

Teflon the wizard
Finding his creative light
May he come back soon

I don't know. He changes names and profile pics a lot on soundcloud. I hope that not him in the pic.

WHERE ARE YOU TEFLON ?!?!

I think the person on the picture is Hydlides wife. I remember Hydlide showing it briefly on one of his videos.

Disappearing from time to time is something that his mucker Peter Lansford also has a history of.

Perhaps it creates an air of mystique.

I hope that's the reason anyway, rather than any deeper dream, such as a real-life crisis.
