Lee Johnson, professor of music and director of the composition and technology degree in the Department of Music, has released a new album. The album titled, Back to Life, is a collection of pieces themed on the passage of time.

Back To Life is a series of eight short videos which tell a story of time and change set in the American West. Originally intended as looping ambient videos, they are on the surface explorations of landscape and color harmony, natural processes, and life and death.

"I am convinced that the impact of the 'paintings in motion' and the immersive non-genre specific music will make this a richly transformative experience of time and change," Johnson said.

Johnson and visual artist Clay Powers are the creators of Sandfloor Cathedral, Every Matter Under Heaven, Lunch In America, Wordsmith, DEMOPERA and the Emmy nominated Colours of a Soul. Having worked together since 1993, their award-winning works have been released by Warner Bros., Platinum Entertainment, Intersound International, Pamplin Music, OMI Records, Vision Video, Jammates Records, CC’nC Records, Deutsche Austroaphon, Compendia Music and many others. Their symphonic films have been broadcast on Direct TV’s Hope Channel, Georgia Public Broadcasting, Oklahoma Public Television, Germany’s Bayerischer Rundfunk and Polish Public Television.

Back To Life will be released on all digital download and streaming sites as well as on the Kings Bishop Productions YouTube Channel.
