We’ve teamed up with Detroit electronic mastermind Celldweller to bring you the exclusive first listen to “Lost Treasures”, which comes from the upcoming Blackstar album.
Blackstar is the audio companion to the book of the same name, which was written by Joshua Viola (“The Bane of Yoto”). It is based upon the 2012 album Wish Upon A Blackstar.
The track is a simmering and moody piece, sounding like something that would play as one walked through the streets of Blade Runner, neon lights flashing and steam rising from sewer vents.
I’m excited for the release of Blackstar. It’s been years in the making and I can’t wait for people to be able to dig into the full book as well as the final score I composed to help immerse the reader in this dystopian utopia.
You can pre-order your copy of Blackstar via FiXT.
Author Joshua Viola adds:
Celldweller and I started Blackstar a couple years ago. We’ve both watched it grow and develop in a very organic way, waiting for the right moment to unleash it to the masses. It’s very exciting to know that time has finally arrived. There aren’t many novels accompanied by an original score. The prose and the audio come together seamlessly–it feels like you’re standing in a cyberpunk city.
