Yes, as promised, here is the post trumpeting that the complete opera is out. On Bandcamp. I’m sending it off to iTunes and all other online distributors today so give it a few days for those. But.. yay! Completed opera!
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO????????????????? Whaddaya think?
Fun facts (might be a SPOILER, if you haven’t listened to the album best don’t read):
There are a few of you who have been around since the steampunk opera sampler, way before the album was released who know this: BUT, Elysian Nights was NOT the original song Jasper sang in Act 3. The original song was in fact Lost Night’s Lullabye. Jasper sang it and i’ve still got a copy floating around here somewhere. However Lauren sings it A MILLION times better, omg, like a million million times better. The song however predates even that. I’ve got an even older version laying around with ANOTHer girl, also named Lauren singing, but a different Lauren entirely. I’ll do a blog later this week and play you the 3 versions.
I couldn’t fit every piece of info into the AO, but mathematically represented, if r=p+c then l=s+t
I may post a filler post tomorrow and wait one more day to do a Q&A since i know many of you need some time to actually digest the damn thing. So Q&A will be on Friday. Any questions anyone has about the opera i will answer. I have few secrets left, although there is one line of questioning i KNOW will come up, which i will be coy about, since although it seems like what’s going on, it is just theory 1 and there is a theory 2 out there and sooner of later someone will go through the trouble of uncovering it.
But enough of these coy, vague shenanigans…. OH! OH YEAH! Wait, one more thing:
My power went out last night so i sat on my porch all night and considered the “bonus act”. And i thunk a lot of thunks. Here is the deal: the bonus act will likely be longer than a single act. Not a double album opera, but a single full length, 45 minute album, same length as the fairy tales albums. It will begin beFORE the steampunk era. It will feature the albino tribe, who btw, are the native inhabitants of the region, before New Albion was built. It will also feature one of the red haired line. Parts of it will take place in a very specific period of New Albion history, sometime during the operas but not directly connected to the opera stories. I will, just to be cheeky, have a moment where a specific song from one of the operas plays briefly in the background as a character passes by what’s happening, but this is not important. An albino princess, far from home, well, not far from where, just when, on a trying task, now lost. The tribe knows: The Game will be played, and they want no part of it.
Anyway, the complete Atompunk Opera is out! Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who have bought it and been following the series and listening and making this endeavor so joyous for me. I love you all, my dears.
