ARP Odyssey | On The Wire - RIP Buena Pearlman

Alex Ball

Buena Pearlman is Alan R. Pearlman's wife. She passed away Friday, July 3, 2020.

"This is an original composition and performance I made with the ARP Odyssey from the mid-70s.

A few days ago as I was finishing this video I heard that Buena Pearlman had sadly passed at the age of 93. I had the pleasure of briefly speaking to her on a Skype call last year whilst we were recording with an ARP 2002 and she said 'I remember those' with a wry smile when we proudly showed the instrument.

As a small gesture, I've put this song up on Bandcamp and any sales I generate from it will go to the Alan R Pearlman Foundation.

Thank you"

"Buena (Alcalay) Pearlman, age 93, of Newton, passed away on Friday, July 3, 2020. Beloved wife of the late Alan R. Pearlman. Buena was born in Belgrade, then the capital of Yugoslavia, on August 1, 1926. The lives of Buena, her brother, Albert, and their parents, Lepa and Samuel Alcalay, were interrupted by the German invasion of Yugoslavia in 1941. She and her family fled Nazi-occupied Belgrade, where Jews faced near-certain death, and were eventually interned in the Ferramonti camp by Italy's Fascist government before it fell, allowing them an opportunity to escape Europe for good. Years later, she recounted her Holocaust survival story to the Shoah Foundation.

Buena was a bookkeeper for several Massachusetts-based companies including ARP Instruments and The Society of Arts and Crafts. She was a crafts-person in her own right, creating beautiful enamels on copper.

A friend to many, Buena’s humor and kindness will be missed by all who knew her.

Buena is survived by her only daughter, Dina Ruth Pearlman of Kingston, New York and many nephews and cousins."

Alan R. Pearlman passed away on January 5, 2019
