Worlds Apart


Behind the Music

This was my first time writing music inspired by a central idea. I found the new method incredibly engaging and one I’ve been inspired to use for future works. I think many would agree that music is a powerful way of communicating emotions. In combining music and the storytelling of journalism, I think we are able to reach an even wider audience. Music can make us laugh, cry and reminisce through its storytelling, and I want listeners to connect with my music for this project on that level and perhaps even further. 

More than that, I want to bring attention to The Outlaw Ocean Project. The book, as well as Ian’s other works of journalism, addresses a globally significant issue. As an individual, experiencing this project made me realize how wide the implications of one single thing can have on a multitude of people while many others remain entirely ignorant. In bringing attention to Ian’s reporting and raising awareness of these topics, I hope to help make the world a little better.

About Fusion Six

A collision of art forms, broken and repaired — enter the fantastic adventures of Fusion Six.

Existing between reality and possibility, Fusion Six is a boundless expression of music, design and prose. Inspired but not restrained by adventures through space and time, Fusion Six resides in an actuality separated only by imagination from that of our own.

Making his breakthrough in 2011 via the Deeplife Records imprint, his “Bouncy Tent” EP, featuring Harvey Fresh, debuted at number one on www.mypromopool.com. He followed up that year with his sophomore “Here We Go” EP, and first licensed remix of Mobin Master’s “Hear Her” (via Safari Music).

Fusion Six continued with two more remixes for Transform DJ’s and 3rd Rock, before releasing his “Abandon Vision” EP along with Crimson Omega, featuring Deign MC and Jessica Zoe Allen, via Sound Break Records.

His latest and forthcoming works see him partner with Ian Urbina to bring you the “Worlds Apart” EP, featuring Mingue, via Synesthesia Media. “Worlds Apart” represents Fusion Six’s contribution to The Outlaw Ocean Music Project.

The Journalism behind the Music

All music in this project is based on The Outlaw Ocean, a New York Times Best-Selling book by Ian Urbina that chronicles lawlessness at sea around the world. This reporting touches on a diversity of abuses ranging from illegal and overfishing, arms trafficking at sea, human slavery, gun running, intentional dumping, murder of stowaways, thievery of ships and other topics.
