In my last post, I talked about an album I just released called A City is a Sound. It’s one of a trilogy called Another Place, each album with a theme related to location (A City is a Sound, Alone in a Big Place, and Out of Place).
Here’s the pitch for Alone in a Big Place :
There’s a feeling you get when you’re alone in a big place–under the stars in the wilderness, or on the ocean by yourself with no land in sight. It’s unsettling and awe inspiring at the same time. This album deals with that feeling, from a cosmonaut suddenly cut off from the Earth, to a security guard who experiences a blinding, otherwordly vision in an empty factory at midnight, to a man who stays behind after the disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear plant to care for the city’s stray cats.
Includes a 50-page illustrated digital booklet, with short fiction to accompany each track. The booklet comes in two versions, one hi-res for use on computers, and the other optimized for portable devices.
Here’s a sample track.
The digital booklet for Alone in a Big Place is extensive. Each track gets a title page featuring an evocative photograph, followed by a piece of short fiction, ten in all.
Here are the sections for two tracks, “The Ghosts of Soyuz” Parts I and II (it has four parts in all).
You can find the album here.
