Please join us at Memorial Church for a special evening of improvised synth music with CCRMA visiting artist Jordan Rudess. Voted Best Keyboardist of All Time by MusicRadar, Jordan is best known as the keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire for platinum-selling Grammy-nominated prog rock band, Dream Theater. A classical prodigy who began his studies at the Juilliard School of Music at the age of ten, Jordan's music is a unique blend of classical and rock influences. In addition to playing in Dream Theater, Jordan has worked with a wide range of artists including David Bowie, Jan Hammer, Enrique Iglesias, the Paul Winter Consort, Annie Haslam, LMR (his side project with Tony Levin and Marco Minnemann), Liquid Tension Experiment, Steven Wilson, Aviv Geffen, the Dixie Dregs, Rod Morgenstein, and Tony Williams, among others. Jordan's interest in state-of-the-art keyboard controllers and music apps are another area of his career in which he has achieved success. Jordan owns the successful App development company Wizdom Music, creators of award-winning apps. Wizdom Music's latest app, GeoShred, was created in collaboration with moForte, founding members of Stanford University's Sondius team.
