InDepth InterView: Michael Mott - Part 1: Inside Look At GONE: THE REMIXES & ITHACA COLLEGE AT 54 BELOWInDepth InterView: Michael Mott - Part 1: Inside Look At GONE: THE REMIXES & ITHACA COLLEGE AT 54 BELOW
by Pat Cerasaro - Feb 25, 2015

One of the most idiosyncratic and undeniably gifted composers and lyricists to emerge this century, Michael Mott has taken the theatre world by storm with his absolutely spectacular collection of compositions titled WHERE THE SKY ENDS: THE SONGS OF MICHAEL MOTT and now Mott discusses the finer points of his newest release extensively as part of a fresh multi-part series analyzing his theatre and pop work, old and new. In today's discussion, Mott and I analyze his brand new collection of pop remixes for the WHERE THE SKY ENDS standout 'Gone', featuring a spine-tingling track that exclusively premiered on this site earlier this week, 'Gone (Adam Zucker French 75 Mix)', which is available here. Mott lays out the groundwork of the pop-based roots for the tune, largely inspired by the work of chart-topper Jason Mraz, as well as sheds some light on his desire to create a remix EP reminiscent of superstar Mariah Carey and her iconic remix albums of the 1990s and 2000s. Additionally, Mott goes inside the process itself and offers the full 411 on what made these exceptional remixes a reality as well as the accomplished producers he collaborated with to make the remixes all a reality. All of that, a preview of Mott's upcoming 54 Below event ITHACA COLLEGE AT 54 BELOW and much, much more in this first part of a continuing conversation with one of Broadway's best and brightest new talents.
