Upgrade Soul is a highly collaborative project. In addition to previously described contributions by myself and Erik Loyer, Upgrade Soul will feature an original interactive score by experimental hip hop luminary Alexis Gideon. I’ve been a fan of Alexis’ singular musical sensibility from the first time I heard it, and Alexis and I collaborated, with Shelley Short, Becca Taylor and Cynthia Star, on his psychedelic animated rap opera, Video Musics 2: Sun Wu Kong. Erik’s design for the Reader features music as a prominent element, and Alexis’ music will dynamically accompany a truly immersive comics reading experience.
