Quodia, featuring Trey Gunn (King Crimson) and Joe Mendelson (Rise Robots Rise) is a “synthesis of music, theater, video art, and animation; a psychedelic contemporary parable." - BBC Moscow.
The double-disc CD/DVD, "The Arrow", is divided into seven chapters. The CD contains the full piece in audio form, while the DVD adds the visual aspects of the story along with an innovative approach to sound placement in the 5.1 surround sound mixes. In addition, the DVD included a children's audio commentary track (which is a fascinating perspective on the piqued imaginations of our youth when fertilized by modern/ancient storytelling) and special performance-only videos of the "Water Woman" story told in Russian by Regina Spektor and in Spanish by Nadia Valencia Mazuela.
Quodia has toured in Russia, Norway, Spain, Italy, Chile, Argentina, Mexico and the USA.
