Cursed Legacy : Lunar Isolation, a rock musical
Lunar Isolation is more than a progressive rock concept album. It's an entire musical inspired by likes of Rick Wakeman and Jeff Wayne.
LUNAR ISOLATION: A PROGRESSIVE ROCK MUSICAL
Progressive conceptual rock project "Cursed Legacy are excited to reveal they are producing a musical titled "Lunar Isolation" which will be centred on the lead character who has been incarcerated at a moon-based prison trialled by leading government alliances 'who are awaiting the installation of resource retrieving equipment' The album is set to contain several special guest musicians and narrators as well as feature a full-blown orchestral score. Taking a leaf out of the book of Rick Wakeman and Jeff Wayne; this album is set to be a thrilling journey from beginning to end.
WHAT IS LUNAR ISOLATION ABOUT?:
Towards the end of the 21st Century, a joint committee of lawmakers and scientists decide to build a base on the surface of the moon for the collection and research of resources such as Helium-3 and moon dust. This is no ordinary station however; this is an ultra-security prison. There's no escaping a cell with a supply of oxygen on a desolate and cold surface.
English serial killer Damon Hugo is sentenced to life on the moon. He’ll spend at least 40 years doing what machine could do better and quicker but at a lower expense. Damon Hugo was convicted for the murder of 12 females in the space of 5 years, one including a child: The problem? He’s actually innocent.
Throughout the album, the psychological trauma of leaving the Earth behind and being one of a dozen despised criminals floating above the planet, the listener understands the complicated process of proving Damon’s innocence…
WRITING AND PRODUCTION: The composition and production of the album has begun with recording locations in Australia and across Europe. The team includes an English film score composer and Australian record producer. The main writing team are joined by special guest narrators, musicians and vocalists who have been vital to developing the sound and atmosphere that will create this dramatic rock album. With legendary music producers on standby for the mixing sessions, we can assure you that this will not be a compressed and badly mixed record.
THE MUSIC ITSELF: From guitars to ensembles and even the use of bouzouki’s and timpani – we hope to compliment the excellent plot, lyrics and score with a large arrangement of music.
With several awesome guests from the world of rock already willing to lend a hand to the project, this is destined to be one hell of a ride.
