Jordan Rudess – Digital Music Visionary

Music is an infinite universe. I continue to marvel at the convergence of music and technology as greater levels of immediacy are achieved by digital music application companies.

Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater keyboardist) has a prominent role in the mix as a music visionary architect. I prize the apps he and Kevin Chartier (Wizdom Music) have delivered in software for the iPad.

One such app is MorphWiz which is a both an expressive musical instrument and an exciting visual experience.

It is noteable that Jordan Rudess was invited to kick off the Microsoft Build 2012 Conference in Redmond, Washington on October 30th. I am impressed to see that his company, Wizdom Music is delivering on the value proposition of cross-platform portability to Microsoft Surface and Windows 8. So far Morphwiz and Tachyon have been ported to Windows 8. Expect the rest of the Wizdom Music apps to follow suit.

I plan to write more about what Jordan Rudess, Dream Theater and what Wizdom Music are accomplishing in future posts. I hope to get the opportunity to sit down with Jordan Rudess and Kevin Chartier some time soon to learn more directly about their vision and direction.
