Bio

The beautiful and haunting collection of “Electronic” compositions from the debut album, INTERSONIC, is the result of many years of listening and playing by JORDAN RUDESS (Dream Theater) and synth-wiz, STEVE HORELICK.  
 
As Jordan and Steve describe interSonic:  “When we assemble our collection of electronic and acoustic instruments, we’re setting up our sonic canvas.  Will the music be tonal or textural?  Who knows?  A wonderful, initial state of uncertainty fills the air…Keys are pressed.  We listen.  Knobs are turned.  We respond.  Touchplates are activated and music begins to flow from our minds through our fingers into the real world.  It’s magic.  Our very personal magic.”
 
Steve Horelick:
 
Experimental musician, composer and musical adventurer, Steve Horelick, is known for his soundtracks, songs and scores for TV, film and games.  His TV credits include more than 350 episodes, encompassing such award-winning productions as PBS's Reading Rainbow (featuring the world's 1st all electronic theme song).  Rolling Stone called Steve’s theme song for Reading Rainbow “…one of the catchiest tunes in theme-song history.”  
 
Steve has scored films ranging from 80's cult-horror classics to HBO's legendary baseball documentary series "When It Was a Game," which earned him his first EMMY nomination.

Steve's true passion is electronic music.  He was a founding member of the acclaimed noise band, The Electronic Art Ensemble.  He currently performs ephemeral minimalist and often outrageous electronic 3D Surround Immersion soundscapes on his Buchla 200e and Easel, extensive Eurorack system.
 
Jordan Rudess:
 
Voted “Best Keyboardist of All Time” by Music Radar Magazine, Jordan Rudess is best known as the keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire for platinum-selling Grammy-nominated prog rock band, Dream Theater.  
 
At nine, Jordan entered the Juilliard School of Music Pre-College Division for classical piano training, but by his late teens he had grown increasingly interested in synthesizers and progressive rock music.
 
Jordan gained international attention in 1994 when he was voted “Best New Talent” in the Keyboard Magazine readers’ poll after the release of his “Listen” solo album.  Prior to joining Dream Theater in 1999 (where he currently remains as their full-time keyboardist), Jordan was a member of The Dixie Dregs.  
 
In 2013, Rudess joined with bassist, Tony Levin, and drummer, Marco Minnemann, to create a new supergroup, Levin Minnemann Rudess.  The trio released a self-titled debut album and their sophomore recording, “From The Law Offices Of Levin Minnemann Rudess”.  Some of Jordan’s other projects include two albums with “Liquid Tension Experiment”, a one-off duo performance with John Petrucci (released as the CD “An Evening With John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess”), a studio and live album with Rod Morgenstein, Steven Wilson’s album, “Grace for Drowning” and numerous solo albums.  
 
Jordan’s interest in state of the art keyboard controllers is another area of his career in which he has achieved success.  Jordan owns the successful App development company Wizdom Music, which has developed award-winning apps including: MorphWiz, SampleWiz, Geo Synthesizer, SpaceWiz, SketchWiz, Tachyon, Explores, EarWiz, JordanTron, HarmonyWiz, and GeoShred.  MorphWiz won the first ever Billboard award for Best Music Creation App. Wizdom Music has also built apps for Intel, Microsoft and RIM.
 
He is Chief Music Officer at CME Music, creators of the acclaimed XKey mobile keyboard, as well as the Director of Music Experience for the London-based technology company, Roli Labs, creators of the Seaboard. He is also the author of 2 keyboard technique books including his latest, “Total Keyboard Wizardry: A Technique and Improvisation Workbook”.
