Celldweller and Josh Viola unveil full book and soundtrackElectro/rock artist Celldweller and sci-fi author/artist Josh Viola have unveiled the full novel and soundtrack score for Blackstar, a musical/literary collaboration the duo began in 2013. Taking place in a futuristic dystopia, Blackstar will be available via the FiXT webstore on September 18, now available for pre-order; the previous releases of Act I and Act II are also currently available. Of the project, Celldweller has stated, “It’s been years in the making and I can’t wait for people to be able to dig into the full book as well as the final score I composed to help immerse the reader in this dystopian utopia.” In addition, author Viola commented, “There aren’t many novels accompanied by an original score. The prose and the audio come together seamlessly – it feels like you’re standing in a cyberpunk city.”
Blackstar follows the success of Viola’s previous award winning novel, The Bane of Yoto; an app companion for the book featured tracks licensed from Celldweller’s Soundtrack for the Voices in My Head series. Viola is also the chief editor for Hex Publishers and had also directed the animated music video for “Unshakeable,” from Celldweller’s 2012 full-length album Wish Upon a Blackstar.
