Bruck's Big Adventure is a collection songs written about fictional stories involving me, my girlfriend, and our stuffed animals! I worked on it for about 3 months, in secret, as a valentines day gift for my girlfriend.
I had always joked about making a song about our favorite stuffed animal, Bruck. Around November/December, I decided this would be a fun idea to run with for a valentines day surprise. Not long after I started work on the album, Erika had a dream in which I had a cute-oriented side project called "Trolltron". I managed to record her recitation of the dream (as soon as she started telling me I grabbed my recorder and made her start over when I realized how significant it was), and the rest is history!
The music is a cross between futuristic, experimental, danceable, cute, and funny. I also uses a number field recordings and samples from real life adventures we've taken, as to personalize the atmosphere, and each song has an associated illustration.
If you like this project, check out my current main project!
