The classic Pink Floyd album Dark Side of the Moon has been remade by many different artists, but this remake by Mobtown Moon slightly different. Mobtown Moon has brought together many of Baltimore’s most creative musicians, from across many styles and genres of music, to record and perform a unique, compelling, and unapologetically beautiful interpretation of this classic work. Forty-one individual musicians were involved in the recording. Mobtown Moon features fresh grooves and eclectic sounds derived from jazz, classical music, choral music, bluegrass, hip-hop and rock.
**From Mobtown Music Guide**
“Mobtown Moon” is the vision of co-producers Sandy Asirvatham & ellen cherry, who managed to take a piece of classic Americana, and strip it down to the basic melodies and rebuild it in a completely original fashion.
Like the original, the album works as a through-composed art piece, where one song leads directly into the next, but that is pretty much where the comparisons end. “Mobtown Moon,” managed to rework these classic songs in such a manner that you forget you are listening to re-imagined versions and enjoy them on their own merit. Aside from the basic melody, everything else is altered: instrumentation, chord substitutions/structure, arrangement, tempo, etc.”
