Yesterday, Basti from “Never Ending Music” in Regensburg was here. We shot the video for the crowdfunding of my concept album “Space Escapism Opera”. We had a great time. Soon the video will be cut an uploaded and the crowdfunding can start.
The title of the concept album consists of the terms space, escapism and opera. Why these terms?
Escapism describes an era, when people wanted to escape from reality. Out protagonist wants to escape from a world full of technology. The Technologies lead to diseases.
Why space escapism?
Many people in 2050 try to move to outer space. They want to follow up the moon colony. Space escapism also means to escape from the space where all people live in densely populated megacities. So the space can also be seen as places like rooms, buildings and cities.
An opera is a big art work combining text and a musical score. It tells an epic dramatic story.
Space escapism opera also includes the term space opera, which is a subgenre of science fiction, telling a melodramatic story that is set in outer space.
These are the ingredients that create that delicious album title space escapism opera.

Moodboards enable a person to illustrate visually the direction of style or they visually explain a certain style of writing. That’s what Wikipedia writes.
I use the moodboard to explain the style of music for the concept album. It’s like 7 moodboards, explaining the style of the 7 songs. What does the style look like? Like futuristic sounds of progressive rock? Alternative science fiction music? I hope so.
