Michael D'Orazio Live at Chaplin's. Created during the winter of 2008-2009.
-----Dark and gloomy this cd is a collection of open mic performances at Chaplin's Music Cafe. It has young versions, and
some rare improvised tracks including an alternate version of "There She Goes", and other dark tracks like "Car Crash", which was
all about his girlfriend's car accident, and "Count your Failures", a long somber song about failure. This cd is one of a kind.
"The World of Michael D'Orazio, Voyages in Illustration"
------This is an overview of some work I've done at the University, the comics I've done after. It spans a period of six years worth of work. It is a very colorful book.
Proverbs 27:20 Just as Death and Destruction are never satisfied, so human desire is never satisfied.
Proverbs 7:21With persuasive words she led him astray; she seduced him with her smooth talk.
"Dark as a Dungeon, damp as the dew!!!"
Michael performing "The Gate", a song originally done by "The Burning".
"World of Michael D'Orazio", volume two, in black and white.
-----This book represents a rebellion of thought and imagery against modern day conservative,
and commercial art. In a very graphic and bold representation of the images such as day of the dead
skeletons, and goblins, and evil clowns. This book was not put together to bow down to the establishment
of children's art, nor does it insult the intelligence of the reader, trying to coddle the minds of today. It does
not want to be nice, so don't buy this if you are going to be critical of work steps over boundries. This book
is all black and white bold graphic images, including comics, and other stuff.
Now playing..."The End"
If you don't want to buy anything you can donate to Michael D'Orazios Gallery.
Help keep the spirit alive!!
Buy "The World of Inappropriate Things...Hardcover Book!!!!
-----This is the hardback color edition, and it is full of dark and scary pictures, or goblin's, witches, day of the dead skeletons, evil clowns, and
anything else that would fall into the criteria of darkness. I made this book as punchy as I could. There aren't that many of these books in print so
they are more like a collectors item. I hope anyways.
Michael D'Orazio's "Suicide" cd, (2004).
-----This cd was the first set of recordings I did by myself in 2004. I wanted to get my songs on tape so
I wouldn't forget them. That is how it all started. It is a very diverse cd, with many different styles
of writing. It is a collection of a few time periods spanning from the late 90's til then. This is a remastered
version of the album, which is alot better than what it was.
-----Delicate, and heartfelt, "Sing-a-Song" is very soft, and sung with feeling.
I don't know what to say about this particular cd. It is very mellow and folky. Slightly experimental, moody, and sometimes a little silly. It is kind of fun, and it doesn't take itself too seriously.
