Feature: Joe's Garage on 'Rise of the Obsidian Interstellar'

It's rare that I'd want to share what is essentially a review of my work, but I don't think I've seen one where someone so completely 'got' one of my albums as much as Joe Dorsey gets Rise of the Obsidian Interstellar. There are a lot of insightful connections drawn here that go beyond the album itself, into the origins and influences of classic video game composers like Nobuo Uematsu and Koji Kondo.

In Depth: Mud Water

This musical excerpt features samples from a recording of 'Petrushka', composed by Igor Stravinsky.

The Mud Water Project was a multidisciplinary theater project bringing together turf dancers, ballet dancers, music and spoken word artists. Utilizing acting and improvisational dance, while exploring real human emotions and life experiences, the project sought to give the turf dance community opportunities to share its stories, art, and truths in a concert-style setting and to audiences often beyond its reach.

This was my first opportunity to write music to be danced to - it was fun to attend the rehearsals, observe and learn from the dancers and let their creativity inspire my work.

More info about the project can be found here.
