Dancing Monkey is excited to be able to share with you the music of SATELLITES. Composed by (S)cientist Nathaniel Schmidt, this album is the first of what we hope will be many future releases of his work and soundtracks to our experiments.
Here’s a sample: PROLOGUE
Album Cover design by Jarett Sitter (jaretts.com)
“My intention for the music of Satellites was to express both the atmosphere of melancholy found in the play, along with idea of orbiting satellites, moving in circles and emitting signals to and from Earth. What results is music that seems to move around and around in circles, while at the same time digging in to the deep, ingrained sadness that life can evoke in all of us. The story of Mark and Vanessa is something we can all connect with, and my hope is that the music will offer that same connection to its listeners.” Nathaniel Schmidt
