Fighting Island is the musical project of Chicago artist PJ Rork. Started in 2016, Fighting Island takes inspiration from 16-bit era JRPGs and crafts emotive soundtracks for fictional video games. Their debut album, Echoes from Brightmoon Tor, was released in December of 2020. Becoming a multimedia project of sorts, Echoes tells a more developed story—embellished with Rork’s own visual art. Overall, these explorations into the wide and wonderful world of VGM seek to transport the listener to worlds as familiar as they are new.
