It was extremely sad to hear about Mr. Icking's passing earlier this year. Werner was a friend of contemporary music, of composers, and a maverick of the internet. A genuine being.

The circumstances of his death are mystifying, and brought up several associatsions for me - my love for music, Germany, forests, bycicles, and my fear of death.

Shortly after learning about Werner's death, I composed a composition called "Loss" and I dedicated it to him. The composition is a mix of notated music and audio excerpts from improvisations recorded outdoors (near a forest).
