The main character from the concept album “Space Escapism Opera” will become a reward for the crowdfunding of the album. This is the prototype, made by my wife. The real reward will be bigger than this.
Interludes decorate your room with acoustic streamers and balloons.
There will be 7 pieces on the concept album. I think it’s enough for a alternative rock album. Like in great symphonies, there will be a prelude and a “grande finale”. Between the songs there are interludes. The interludes are instrumental and support the futuristic atmosphere. They will decorate your room with acoustic streamers and balloons.
Grandma will have difficulties to clap to the rhythm of progressive rock
The songs tell the story in words. They will be progressive, complex and epically long. Grandma will have difficulties to clap her hands to the rhythm of progressive rock.
I think in the next post it’s time for a futuristic moodboard.
This diagram shows a raw story concept of the album.
In the year 2050 there is a giant race of technologies.
The major desasters start from these technologies. Surveillance and cyber wars start from digital technologies. Neurotechnologies make the brain-computer-interaction possible, but they also lead to psychiatric diseases. Biotechnologies and bioengineering lead to physical illnesses.
The world has become sick and wounded.
This is the point when we meet the protagonist. The main character of the story. He wants to escape from this sick world. He wants to live in a world without digital, biological or neurotechnologies. A world leaded by the basics of all technologies. Analog technologies. But analog techologies have poor financial resources on earth.
Moon colonization – a brave new world.
The aerospace program “moon colonization” is the only chance of the protagonist to escape from the sick old world. And it has sufficiant financial resources to develop analog technologies. But you have to comply many requirements to take part at the aerospace program. Now this is the motivation of the main character. The goal to fly away from this world and to enter a brave new world.
