Just Fade Away: Music of Cowboy Bebop
Info about 'Just Fade Away': Japanese 'Otaku' culture is growing by leaps and bounds, and is becoming the next big movement to sweep American Culture. Anime and Video Games are more often becoming valid modes for artistic expression in the area of music. Composer/Producer G-Clef da Mad Komposa and his band Rayzd embark on perhaps the first serious interpretation of some of Otaku culture's best music, most notably Japanese composer Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop/Escaflowne), as well as others. A Landmark project featuring many different instrumentations, even two Big Band tracks! RAYZD is the new name of a band formerly called G-Clef and da Houndz/Yalloppin' Hounds, and is the hip-hop/pop/jazz-oriented Phoenix that rose from the ashes of the Neo Swing Movement of the turn of the millennium! But trust us you never heard a band like this before.... They are 100% original, combining real musical skills with real rhymes, lyrics, and beats to form the most exciting new movement in music on this planet! Rayzd means many things to us: It means resurrection from the ashes... It means a resurgence of real melody and harmony combined with experimental pop.... It means it's time to 'rayz' the level now for the entire music world.... It means movement from darkness to light....travelling from west to east. The message behind Rayzd is based on values that are not necessarily of the material world. Concepts like love, aspiration to greatness, rejection of mediocrity, positive enhancement of human potential are among the messages they hope to leave their audiences with.
