Rudymann is the musical identity of composer and multi-instrumentalist Michael Rudy.  Spanning impressionistic piano, free jazz, progressive rock orchestras, and beat driven soundscapes, "Once Upon a Century Ago" captures the excitement of real-time performance interacting with arpeggiators and loops.  Supported by beat machines and synthesizers, instruments include fretless bass, piano, electric guitar, nylon string midi-guitar, tenor saxophone, and drums.

This music is a series of colorful vignettes that tell a story of adventure, challenges, and celebration.  All of the songs are groove or beat powered.  The story is organized in three parts, with Snap no1 and Snap no2 framing the center section, and the storyline is detailed in the tweet-sized CD Art song descriptions.
