kidkoala space cadet Kid Koala publishing graphic novel Space Cadet with soundtrack

A year ago, Eric San (aka Kid Koala) gave us the heads-up in an interview on a new graphic novel. Titled Space Cadet, San aimed to craft a sedate and soothing musical accompaniment in comparison to his harsher work on The Slew and the comic that went along with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Now, complete with 15 tracks and 132 pages, San will release this new collaboration between visual art and sound on September 19th through Ninja Tune (via Prefix).

The graphic novel will explore the concept of family and social connectivity while also telling an adventurous story of the relationship between technology and isolation. San composed the soundtrack with a variety of instruments, namely the piano and seven turntables, and will be performing Space Cadet at Montreal’s Biosphere from July 15th to 17th. Check out a trailer for the concert and the soundtrack’s tracklist below.
