I was listening to Byron’s Pandora station today and this artist came up.  Beautiful song (To The Stars).  I did some research and found his LastFM station here.  All good stuff, but I recommend listening to To the Stars first.  This guy, like Saltillo and a few others, has an interesting way of integrating classical music and instrumentation into “modern” music (Saltillo uses the violin predominantly and Ogawa the Cello).  These guys are poised to do amazing things if they just stick with it.  What I’d like to hear is those two team up with Antony Hagerty (Saltillo clearly is an excellent composer but unacomplished lyricist/singer).  In fact, Ogawa mentions on his blog that he is working on something with deeper “heavier” electronic sounds… I have a feeling this will turn out a lot like Saltillo but less gothic.
