Support pours in for Pauline Anna Strom

A fundraising page has been launched following Strom’s fall at her San Francisco home

RVNG Intl and friends are raising money for US electronic music composer Pauline Anna Strom following a fall in her apartment in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco in which she fractured her hip. Strom has already had surgery and spent a month at Jewish Home & Rehab Center, all of which was covered by insurance. She is said to be recovering well and has returned home. however she now needs financial help to get the continued support needed. Full details can be found on the GoFundMe page.

In 2017 RVNG Intl released Strom's Trans-Millenia Music, a collection of sound explorations recorded in the 1980s in the apartment where she still lives. She had apparently recorded some new music prior to her fall, which the label hopes to release via Bandcamp to help raise funds.

The money raised to date is $7500.
