Old timey piano fun meets musical stars from the internet
By Jesus, I of course mean Viking Jesus. He’s maybe not a God, but he’s musician, one of many to be featured on an album of music inspired by the upcoming videogame Monaco. The soundtrack to the game was composed by Grammy nominee Austin Wintory, best known for his work on Journey. You can pre-order the Monaco OST and The Gentleman’s Collection of Monaco themed songs right now, featuring raps from MegaRan, strings from the Videri String Quartet, controversy from Laura Vall, and a lot more.
Like the game, the album is about mixing different styles and strengths to create something larger than the sum of those parts. Let’s pay tribute to the sweet power of collaboration!

"The beach, the trees, even the clouds in the sky... everything is build from little tiny pieces of stuff. Just like in a Gameboy game... a nice tight little world... and all its inhabitants... made out of little building blocks... Why can't these little pixels be the building blocks for love..? For loss... for understanding"- James Kochalka, Reinventing Everything part 1
