STAR GOES NOVA'S NEW EP IS BOUND TO BE AN EDM CLASSIC
Within the darkness, Star Goes Nova found the light in her music, creating art that pulled her from the grips of despair and loss. Star Goes Nova creates music combining real instrumentation with electronica primarily through her 115 year old piano. She finds meaning in space, time, and thought.
More widely known as bassist Christine Law in Southern California, she has toured and recorded with the famous and the obscure. Her career started touring and recording with Martha Davis during her hiatus from the Motels. Soon thereafter, she became known as a bassist in Los Angeles clubs with Jan Kuehnemunde’s (Vixen) “Drawing Down The Moon” project. She often collaborates with Grammy winner John Baffa and platinum selling songwriters Suzanne Paris and David Holster.
Her influences include Blackmill, Glitch Mob, Illenium, Pink Floyd, Yes, Porter Robinson, and pianist Yiruma. Power and beauty are her inspirations. “I follow anything Space and often the Falcon 9 rocket or Hubble galaxy sonifications are in my music,” she shares. She just released her self-titled album, Star Goes Nova. The 8 song album features 6 previously released songs that have been remixed for the album, giving them more of a sci-fi and space like sound, and features 2 new singles, “Phat Barbarella” and “Words and Stardust.”
Musically and sonically, Star Goes Nova has a clear connection to the likes of Zedd, Pink Floyd, Seven Lions, and Avicii. Star Goes Nova is not like any other EDM or chillwave you’ll ever hear. It’s cinematic and future trap qualities elevate it to another level that not many artists have gone. When you listen to the music, you almost lift out of your seat, your body moves on it’s own accord as the music grips your spirit and soul.
Star Goes Nova is worth a listen. You’ll find that you’ll be both entrances and dancing along to the music.
MODERY MYSTERS, JUNE 2022
STAR GOES NOVA’S DEBUT ALBUM IS ETHEREAL
The queen of ambient electronica and dance music debuts her EDM, drum and bass, and chillwave self-titled album, Star Goes Nova. The artist, also known as Los Angeles bassist Christine Law, connects her swirling spirit with her 115 year old piano to create the synths we know and love. She finds meaning in time, space, and thought, often including the sounds of rockets and the stars in her music.
“Phat Barbarella” was released alongside her album. It was inspired by Jane Fonda’s 1968 sci-fi film Barbarella. Dubstep vibes, retro synths and grim bass take the Queen of the Galaxy on her quest for love. Light-hearted and fun, starship travelers party in zero-g. Rarely seen in her videos, Star Goes Nova appears as the astronaut queen leading the quest for party fun through retro psychedelia.
It has a Pink Floyd vibe to it with a big cinematic energy that guides the story. She plays with instrumentation and electronic sounds, which creates emotion in the song, like it’s alive. The tempo is smooth and the beat gets under your skin, like an itch that needs to be scratched and the only way to relieve it is to dance along.
ETHNO CLOUD, JUNE 2022
Star Goes Nova's Self Titled EDM Album Reveals Her Musical Ability
Star Goes Nova is an intrinsic soul who creates epic stories that combine real instruments with electronica, transcending past and future. She does this through her 115 year old piano, power drums and deep bass music. These sonic manifestations are empathic spaces to stargaze, gather personal power or share thoughts from other worlds.
She finds meaning in space, time, and thought, giving her music another area of musical depth and endurance. She just released her debut EDM and cinematic self-titled album, 'Star Goes Nova." Consisting of 8 original songs, 'Star Goes Nova' has 6 of her previously released singles that are remixed to create a cohesive album alongside 2 new singles, "Phat Barbarella" and "Words and Stardust."
"Phat Barbarella" is the drum & bass and sci-fi inspired single that has a Pink Floyd style to it. Star Goes Nova takes Jane Fonda's 1968 classic Barbarella into a dubstep psychedelic future. Sci-fi synth melodies over dubstep vibes and grime bass release us from gravity as we dance on our starship through outer space.
"Words and Stardust" is a conceptual song that has electronic ethereal music that swirl and layer. "During the pandemic, I started thinking about how so many of us were creating online relationships for connection," she shares. "I kept thinking about how words and imaginations are often the only thing exchanged in an online relationship. Ethereal wishes. So much desire. So much yearning. Unreal. Stardust. I imagined each lover thinking 'You are all my favorite words, but you are stardust, words and stardust. I keep dreaming where we're going, that we have meaning, that we're worth believing. You’re still here and I’m still here and words are everywhere, but it is only stardust.' I wrote this song…. without words, of course, but with lots of stardust."

Through her empathetic and intrinsic capabilities, Star Goes Nova lights a fire in her listeners to reach for the stars and beyond. Working with Grammy producer John Baffa, Christine Law reinvented herself from a well-known Southern California bassist to a multi-instrumentalist and sound engineer. As Star Goes Nova, she creates epic Neoclassical Electronica stories that combine real instruments with EDM sonics, transcending past and future. “The Apprentice” is an epic tale for all who desperately search for meaning. Weaving her 115 year old classical piano, power drums, deep bass EDM themes and featuring Disney vocalist Karen Eden, Star Goes Nova gives her listeners a space to find personal power and dream of magical worlds.
Inspired by Game of Thrones and other Viking tales, “The Apprentice” is a Neoclassical Electronica story of a young dreamer searching for beauty and power. Star Goes Nova, aka Christine Law from the Santa Barbara area, is a multi-instrumentalist and sound engineer who masterfully bonds dubstep drums, grime bass and a 115 year old grand piano. Well known on the Southern California scene as a bassist, Christine’s life was changed by her personal battle with the Thomas Fire to save her horses. Being surrounded by flames, she experienced a dimension that merged the real with the unreal and became Star Goes Nova. The melding of her hardcore and childhood orchestra sonic aesthetics was literally forged by fire. Working with Grammy producer John Baffa and Disney vocalist Karen Eden, “The Apprentice” embraces the magical possibilities of symphonic fantasy and EDM to give the listener a space to find their own power and magic.

DANCING ABOUT ARCHITECTURE, MAY 2021
IT IS AN UTTERLY GORGEOUS PIECE
"It is an utterly gorgeous piece and whether you consider it classical music or electronica, a combination of both or something else altogether is irrelevant. All I know is that the world is a better place for having this in it."
Say the phrase classical music and most people will automatically think of the past. But classical music is a genre like any other and so it moves with the times too. Star Goes Nova makes music that could easily be seen as the cutting edge of that genre, especially with this gorgeous creation.
Okay, it blends electronic music through its more expected classical grace, it is full of modern beats and futuristic sonics but the tools of the trade are always evolving, so why not?
The Ocean Between Stars, a title that already sets fantastic scenes and imaginative scenarios in motion, is a gorgeously ornate gathering of sounds past and present, digital and analogue, classical and classic. It flows rather than grooves, it shimmers with beauty as electronic creations rain down through the cinematic washes and sweeps which form its sonic bedrock.
It is an utterly gorgeous piece and whether you consider it classical music or electronica, a combination of both or something else altogether is irrelevant. All I know is that the world is a better place for having this in it.
