ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
DOWNLOADs available from iTunes and others. The stock is getting very low. In fact, almost gone so we decided to give up our copies. Hurry!

Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of Pac-Man in America, NAMCO and Greeting Cats, a consortium of artists, filmmakers, musicians, writers, educators, etc., present a series of Pac-Man related projects with new recordings of music, video/film, performance, exhibits, etc., and explores its potentials never explored before beyond the video games, using the iconic impressions, sounds and imageries of the Pac-Man and its characters.

We will kick off the Pac-Man Project with exciting music and video by Ben Jones of Paper Rad.

Ben Jones, or "DogFace" as his friends call him, is a principal member of the renowned three-person art collective, Paper Rad(check out www.paperrad.org). Jones' works have been showcased at numerous prestigious galleries and museums, including Deitch Projects; the Contemporary Museum, Honolulu; Tate Britain, London; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Institute of Contemporary Art, London (2003), among others. The ArtReview held an exhibit featuring Jones as part of the 25 Emerging US Artists at Phillips, de Pury & Company East Gallery, New York (March 10-24, 2005)

Jones has worked on many projects ranging from political ads on television to videos for rock bands in the United States. While recalling Keith Haring's deceptively spare street-Pop sensibility, Jones' work stakes new ground with its combination of color fields, seas of cartoon-like characters, otherworldly environments, and what he describes as "meta-graffiti." His most recent work, Super Mario Movie, a fifteen-minute video made in collaboration with Cory Arcangel took the form of a reprogrammed 8-bit Nintendo video in which Mario navigates a psychedelic crumbling world of corrupted data.

Stuart Argabright, an Emmy nominated producer of Dominatrix and Black Rain produces the song with Jones.

PAC-MAN JAM is Jones' first solo recording and was introduced at E3 Game Convention in May 2005. Only limited numbers of copies were made and many were given away to media already. This will be a sure collector's item!
