From the composer of The Black Panther Animated Series:
Allow yourself to be transported into a new musical world. Emmy nominated and award winning composer, Stephen James Taylor, invites you to experience a new kind of classical composition accomplished by blending little known mathematical tunings with 3 dimensional africanesque rhythms to weave a magical web of dancing frequencies and sonorities.
About Stephen James Taylor:
Stephen has composed most all the scores for the films of legendary Academy Award winning director, Charles Burnett, as well as the musicals, comedies and dramatic films of Robert Townsend. In 2009 Academy Award nominated producer Reginald Hudlin tapped him to write the main title song and underscore for the limited animated series, The Black Panther. His body of work encompasses shows and films from all the major studios.
