About: Originally self-released in 1977, synthesizer pioneer Don Muro’s It’s Time is the singular work of one man combining his skills as a trained musician with a truly creative spirit and the somewhat unmarketable insistence that all of these different styles of music would make up his debut album. While this kind of genre hopping can often take away from an album’s coherence, It’s Time works as a whole because these are such well-crafted and interesting songs. At times playfully fun, at times beautifully earnest, It’s Time is consistently engaging for its
entire 42 minutes. Muro’s sincere love of what he is creating shines through whether it’s a catchy, triumphant rock anthem, a subtly emotive instrumental synthesizer piece or an intense fusion dance jam.
Having spent much of his life teaching others about the latest music technology through his books, videos, classes and seminars, Muro’s influence on electronic music is immeasurable. His demonstration compositions for the legendary Korg M1 helped to make it the world’s best selling synthesizer. The recipient of several ASCAP
composition awards, Muro’s music has been performed everywhere from New York's St. Patrick's Cathedra (where he presented the cathedral's first synthesizer concert) to Disneyland.*via Don Muro
