Ken Lagace, Composer, M1 Tank Platoon

Just a bit of trivia:

Ken Lagace did the music for several Amiga games according to the Hall of Light database including M1 Tank Platoon, Gunship and Pirates!

Now, assuming I haven't goofed it and found the wrong person, this is what he does today:http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...ient=firefox-b

Hopefully it's the right guy. Good to see he is still kicking! M1 Tank Platoon and Gunship were two of my favorite games.

Quote:
Mr. Lagace received his Bachelor of Music degree at Hartt College of Music (CT) in 1960. He studied with Keith Wilson at Yale in 1955, Bernard Portnoy in New York City from 1958 to 1960. He served as a member of the US Coast Guard Band and studied with Kalmen Opperman in New York City from 1962 to 1966. He instructed at the Hartt College of Music (CT) from 1966 to 1987. Under the tutelage of Kalmen Opperman, Mr. Lagace learned to make his own reeds and reface clarinet and saxophone mouthpieces which has become a skill he willingly shares with his peers. He was a member of the Hartford (CT) Symphony Orchestra from 1966 to 1987 playing Assistant Principal Clarinet, Bass Clarinet and Eb Clarinet. He was Principal Clarinetist in the Hartford (CT) Chamber Orchestra from its inception until 1987. His performances include many on TV and Radio, and at Lincoln Center (NYC) and Carnegie Hall (NYC) with the Hartford Symphony. He also made a CD recording of the Mozart Clarinet Concerto with the Hartford (CT) Chamber Orchestra in 1976. In 1987 Mr. Lagace abandoned the clarinet to program computers and in 2008 after retiring, dusted off the clarinet and is enjoying being back in the clarinet world again.
