We’ve been following the releases from Ian Urbina’s Outlaw Ocean Music Project since we reported on last year and the music has been incredible. The core of this project stems from the fact that musicians and journalists are both storytellers. One uses sounds, the other leverages words.
The Outlaw Ocean Music Project is a first-of-its-kind collaboration of such creators. In combining their mediums, these narrators have conveyed emotion and a sense of place in an enthralling new way. On the simplest level though this is simply a captivating collection of inspired songs, which range from electronic and ambient to classical and hip hop.
Over 100 artists have joined the project including Louis Futon, Herzeloyde, Tinlicker, Solarstone, and now, PIERCE with his ‘Deep Blue‘ EP. The EP features two stellar tracks, “Distress Signal” and “Phantom“, both which incorporate a deeper, eerier vibe meshed wonderfully with PIERCE’s signature style. He’s a genius when it comes to sound design and arrangement. Listening to his EP makes it feel as if you’re on this journey with him in some sort of suspenseful underwater world that is utterly hypnotic.
