That's a great question! If you watched the video above, you'll notice we (ListenWatchPlay) are calling this project a "Cinematic Album". To put it simply, we wanna tell a story with cinematic quality sound and performance, enhanced by music. From what we've researched, this will be the very first of it's kind! That cutting edge originality is what inspired everyone involved with this project to work on it. 

We've heard albums very close to the idea of what we're talking about. We're building off of the tremendous artistic spirit of acts like: Coheed and Cambria, Kendrick Lamar, The Mars Volta, and R. Kelly! We wanna take those ideas and bring them one step further. The album will consist of 10 songs, with 11 fully voice-acted and produced scenes in between. Each song will be from one of the three main characters point of view, and will encompass their introspection and emotional change at the time of the song. We believe that this method of story telling will allow you to connect with these characters in ways other media cannot. The introspective quality of a written story, with the action and appeal of a visual tale.

Kingdoms & Legends: The Fall of Arcadia chronicles the harrowing journey of the young Alaskuh, son of King Kraken, who has been recently orphaned by the tyranny of the Empire Bank. Rescued by Odin, the loyal captain of the Kings Guard, Alaskuh flees Arcadia in the hopes of coming back to reclaim his home. But making his own path in a world without his father will prove to be a more dangerous adventure than young Alaskuh bargained for.

Kingdoms and Legends takes place in the fantasy world of Tor. Tor was designed from the ground up to be as strange and fantastical as possible. Instead of riding horses, soldiers ride larger versions of canines and other animals into battle. Instead of airplanes and jets, armies maneuver the sky in majestic airships. Even one of the main characters, Thorn, is a thousands-of-years-old tree spirit inhabiting the wooden prosthetic arm of Captain Odin. You'll even notice Kraken wearing aviators in our concept art! Here's some more concepts to give you an idea of what we're talking about:

No band! In fact, try not to think of it as any singular act putting out an album. This is a collective of talented people trying to bring a story to life! As for the specific musicians, here's a list of those that have contributed to the musical aspect of the project so far:


Misha Camacho - Singer for Broadway

Pete Cruz - Producer and Engineer

Jake Garland - Drummer for Broadway/Memphis May Fire

Felipe Sanchez - Guitarist for Broadway (Formerly of The Real)

Gabe Fernandez - Bassist for Broadway

Earl Halasan - Keys for Palisades

Sean Connors - Guitarist Formerly of Broadway


We know what you're thinking! "That sure is a lot of Broadway members". ListenWatchPlay works very closely with Broadway musically, and each member has brought unbelievable creativity and professionalism to their respective work. If this project is funded, we plan on continuing this story in future releases and collaborating with many talented artists to keep this project as unique as possible.

Each of the 10 songs will be sung by one of the three main characters (Alaskuh/Odin/Kraken). We're currently still locking down singers for each character, and will announce them when they're ALL final. We want the singers voices to match the tonality and personality of their respective characters, so we're taking our time and making extra sure we have the right folks for the job.

In a wider scope, yes. Simply, it is a rock album. BUT each main character will sing in a sub-genre that matches their personality.

Alaskuh - Young, dramatic, and often full of angst - Alaskuh's songs will be of a pop-punk persuasion. An adolescent coming into his own fiery passion, this genre fits him best.

Odin - A veteran of war, and a skillful soldier - Odin's songs will be pure energetic Rock n' Roll. Stoic and serious on the outside, Odin's inner monologue will be filled with his surprisingly contrasting anger, pain, and contempt.

Kraken - Powerful, fierce and arrogant - Kraken's music will display his iron will through a much heavier, Metal sound. Kraken's music will be as loud and ferocious as he is. 

We're glad you asked! Here is a list of the many costs that are associated with this project:

Recording

Performance (acting and singing)

Mixing

Mastering

Legal Fees

Artwork

Website Infrastructure for Distribution

And of course, all the costs of creating the various incentive packages we have available!

To further cement your faith in us and our project, none of the production team will be paid out of the kickstarter funds. In fact, Misha fronted all of his savings just to create the proof of concept you heard in the video! He believes in it that much!

Risks and challenges

Our current risks and challenges include:

Artwork - Finding an artist that we believe captures the spirit and excitement of this project is very important to us. Creating the extensive pieces we are commissioning takes time, and it's possible small delays may arise from this process.

Website Management - Creating websites, especially ones that deliver private content, can often come with unforeseen difficulties. These could lead to small delays.

Final Mix - We want to make sure that our final product is of the highest quality. This could mean rewriting, re-tracking, and remixing. All of which would create slight delays.
