Music For Humans Concept Album
This trilogy highlights an alien species with a curiosity about our culture which is simultaneously barbaric and fascinating to them.
"Music For Humans" follows the journey of aliens who hear music for the first time and try to emulate it after landing on Earth by mistake. Although they are much more sophisticated than us technologically, they have a lot to learn about our culture. "Contact" is a communication signal between an alien explorer and the mothership as they approach Earth. "Facade" is in the perspective of the paranoid humans as the aliens are hovering over the planet and observing, revealing much about what lies underneath our smiling faces.
The album also includes a few other works which were inspired by the main three.
