- About the Project
- Creator & Co-Director:
Alan Bish (Murmeli Walan)
The original concept of Around the World was to showcase and tribute the music of Kazuo Sawa by reimagining his Super Dodge Ball soundtrack in an ethnic style. Over seven years after the concept's creation, Around the World has been released! Featuring 19 tracks from 25 artists, Around the World includes a wide range of musical styles from rock to hip-hop, electronica to world, trance to symphonic. This album would have never been completed without the help of co-director Kyle Crouse (KyleJCrb), who stepped in in 2009 and recruited an amazing group of talented musicians from all corners of the Internet. It's my hope that everyone who listens will enjoy Around the World!

In March 2009, as production was wrapping up on Summoning of Spirits and release of that project was imminent, I decided to reach out to my good friend Alan Bish (Murmeli Walan) about helping him wrap up his project, which had been languishing in development hell for quite some time. Over two years later, the project is finally complete! With 19 arrangements from 25 artists, we pay tribute to Kazuo Sawa's amazing Super Dodge Ball soundtrack with an eclectic mix of ethnic, metal, nerdcore hip-hop, new age, hardcore trance, and orchestral music. I am very proud to have assisted Walan in putting together an album that I feel is very consistent and fun to listen to. I hope everyone enjoys checking out Around the World!
