As Doctor Noize, Cullinan wrote a book, “The Ballad of Phineas McBoof,” and created a CD around it. It’s the story of a monkey musician who becomes so popular that he runs away to escape his groupies. On his journey, he meets other musicians — including drummer Backbone the Octopus and Riley the Robot, who has an electronic sound on “keyboards and toys” — and forms a new band, The International Band of Misunderstood Geniuses. The book has lively rhymes and snazzy illustrations, and the CD features a host of guest voices portraying the animals, such as opera singer Nathan Gunn.Rebecca Wallace
Doctor Noize — a father and acclaimed family musician — knows that kids are the most creative adventurers in the world. These books — telling the same stories as the musical theater albums of the same name — respect the brilliance and color of a child’s imagination. Written and produced by Doctor Noize and featuring the meticulous 3D illustrations of Art Director Yan Miu and Dream Cortex, each book works as a stand-alone adventure or part of a larger multimedia story arc. Explore your Genius. Join The Band!
