John Lautner’s Atompunk Houses

23 Jun

Well kids, i’m off on a plane tomorrow to London to record the singers for The New Albion Guide To Analogue Consciousness, An Atompunk Opera, the final in the New Albion trilogy.

One of the hardest parts of this opera was figuring out what to fit in and what to leave out so that the thing doesn’t become overly long. As such i’ll tell you now, there may be a few questions you have at the end. I believe just about everything you need to know is in there (as usual i will provide lyrics) or easy enough to extrapolate, (and there’s no surreal 4th wall breaking this time) but i’m always happy to answer any questions since a couple points do require a hair of extrapolation. (There is a hidden plot point, but a crafty listener will catch where it is and figure out how to unlock it) I want to make clear, there is nothing in there that’s “up to you” in the sense that i don’t have an answer. I have answers to everything. If you ever want to know, just ask. (although obviously not until all 4 acts are released)

Let’s then take a post to show you the incredible space age architecture of John Lautner.

John Lautner (1911-1994) is a giant in architecture, and created numerous famous houses in southern California.

He was born in Michigan and at age 22 joined a Frank Lloyd Wright apprenticeship program. “I soon realized that i had little interest in formal drafting and avoided the Taliesin drafting room, preferring daily duties of “carpenter, plumber, farmer, cook and dishwasher, that is an apprentice, which I still believe is the real way to learn”

    Hi🙂

    I’ve just found your site and what you’re offering here sounds very interesting. I’m a dieselpunk, and so far I’ve never read anythign atom, so I’m very curious. I’ll certainly give a go to your opera… since I’ve even discovered it the day when it’s lauched. Must be a sign😉

    And by the way, this atompunk houses are simply fantastic!
