Set in the near future. Blade Runner's vision of Los Angles in 2019, depicts society at a crossroads where real and artificial life are at war over existence. Charred skies and baked Earth, force an exodus into outer space for the healthy and wealthy. The rest, are left behind to survive; pedestrians on a dystopian highway where technology and the future collide head-on.
This album is a sonic return to Ridley Scott's gritty film noir world that was painted over Philip K Dick's canvas for "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep." Each composition is an extended meditation on the people, places, and encounters found in this unique cinematic vision that fuses the past with our own future.
