Go: Organic Chamber Orchestra is a 21st-century vision of an orchestra of the future. Artistic director Adam Rudolph’s prototypical approach to composing and improvisational conducting embraces musical forms and cosmologies from around the world.

For the first time, Brooklyn Raga Massive, known for “preserving the past while blurring genres in an inventive spirit” (New York Times), will collaborate with Go: Organic Chamber Orchestra, creating an ensemble of over 25 musicians who will explore new dimensions in and around India’s traditional raga and tabla traditions.

I started my first documentary film about the musical “founding fathers” of progressive Dance Music as we know it entitled: “AND YOU DON’t STOP: The story of progressive dance music”. I am VERY excited about it, and we have some heavy hitters contributing to the project. Details to unfold shortly about ways to contribute, and support the project.

** Damon Banks’ “Travelguides” CD is out and available everywhere. This multi-media project was produced, written and conceived by me. “Travelguides” project reflects the sights and the sounds of Damon’s life traveling the world as a professional musician. It features some of New York City’s most creative and innovative musicians. Go to the “Sounds” page to listen / buy the entire album – or individual tracks. New music for the follow-up CD is being recorded as we speak … Many of his supporters and colleagues call this project “a street corner where world music, jazz and improvisational art forms meet … and fall in love”.

Adam Rudolph’s latest “Moving Pictures” record entitled “Glare of The Tiger” received high praise last year when it was released worldwide.  GO. GET. IT !!
