STAR GOES NOVA REVEALS STUNNING VIDEO + SINGLE


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.

VOLATILE WEEKLY, MARCH 2021
STAR GOES NOVA REVEALS GORGEOUS TRACK

Star Goes Nova Reveals Gorgeous Track “The Apprentice”


Star Goes Nova is big kick drums, deep grime bass and cinematic electronic music. Dubstep compositions of fantasy and power feature Christine’s one-hundred year old grand piano, guest vocalists and guitarists, and Christine’s groovy, bad-ass bass. Her new song “The Apprentice” is the perfect first listening experience to the artist.


More widely known as bassist Christine Law in Southern California, she’s toured and recorded with the famous and the obscure; credits include hardcore band Tantrum, Theo Mordey (Jesus Christ Superstar), Charles Law & Jagged (college radio), Grammy winner John Baffa and platinum selling songwriters Suzanne Paris and David Holster. You’ll hear fantastic collaborations with different artists on Star Goes Nova songs!


Star Goes Nova is a music composer, sound engineer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and performer on the Southern California scene. My inspirations are Seven Lions, Leah, Leo Z, Pink Floyd and Illenium. Star Goes Nova is the fantasy come true of my technical imagination, hardcore rock band, EDM festival and high school orchestra experiences.

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."

https://dancing-about-architecture.com/the-ocean-between-stars-star-goes-nova-reviewed-by-dave-franklin/ 

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.
