Ever wonder what the music might be like when humans have to migrate from earth to another planet? @billcrandalldc aka/Mistochord, helps us imagine.
Musically and thematically, New World Voyage is a concept album, designed to work best as a whole. A projection of images serves as a backdrop as the music tells the 'story' of the space voyagers, very loosely and suggestively, as well as what's going on back on Earth. The concert becomes a kind of music/images/storytelling imaginative exercise that hopefully ultimately leads to greater consideration of the human implications of leaving Earth for another planet, and greater appreciation of Earth itself while we still can.
