We’re bringing back an old feature we used run years ago. Here’s a treat for those who don’t have time to look for new music and don’t want to spend any money.
For those who don’t know, Adam Young (Owl City) has launched a new musical endeavor called Adam Young Scores. From Young himself:
“Stories are infinite. They offer us the ability to retell them according to the way we imagine them. Thus, I want to create musical narratives that aid in the telling of stories that move Adam Young, according to his imagination. And I want to share them with you.
Starting February 1, for as long as I feel moved to do so, I will release a conceptual “film score” each month based on my interpretation of stories that mean something to me. They will live here, on ayoungscores.com, available for you to listen to or download for free, or consume via your preferred online platform (Apple Music, Spotify, etc.). Each score will be accompanied by a visual companion, created from scratch by a visual artist I admire (2016 will feature the work of the incredible James R. Eads). The visual piece will also be released in the form of a limited edition movie poster, signed and numbered by James and myself.
I hope you are as inspired by the music as I have been to create it.”
The first score is for the Apollo 11 shuttle launch. You can download the score at http://www.ayoungscores.com/
