Terra Lumina is a new musical project by John D Boswell, aka melodysheep, the creator of Symphony of Science, and Will Crowley, fellow musician and collaborator for the band Hudson.  

We're looking to create and publish an album of songs covering a topic that is under represented in today's musical scene - science.  John has pioneered a new form of inspirational and educational music through his Symphony of Science music video series, which has garnered millions of views and inspired thousands of people to pursue scientific interests;  Will Crowley is a scientifically educated multi-instrumentalist and has worked for years in the public school system as a math and science educator.  

The album promises to be an epic collection of songs about topics that are endlessly fascinating, yet rarely represented musically. Themes we want to cover include photosynthesis, gravity, supernovae, natural selection, and much more.  

We need your help to fund the creation of this album.  The money will be going to studio time, hiring additional musicians, artwork, and printing physical copies, shirts and posters. 

We have worked together in the past creating concept albums under the name Hudson.  Please take a listen to those two albums to get a taste of what we have done previously.  We are aiming to make a series of songs that carry over the inspirational content from Symphony of Science; it will be a mix of folk/rock with some electronic thrown in.

Please consider supporting us in this unique endeavor.  We will be striving to create something as epic and inspiring as possible, with educational value. 

To the makers of music - all worlds, all times!  Thank you! 

John & Will
