It's probably more interesting for adult sci-fans than the EMP is for adult music fans. Maybe. I'm not really that into sci-fi, but I enjoyed 'em both. Plenty of memorobilia to gawp at (on account of a lot of it being donated/loaned by presumed collector Paul Allen of Microsoft, iirc).
*I think entrance to one gets you into the other. Not sure of the details, but I did see something on the website about revamp work to the sci-fi bit.
when I was there they had a big spread on 80s east coast hip hop :D
(Soz, I thought you were sizing up a visit rather than having already gone.)
The general sound is super technical proggy blasting death, but NOT all downtuned, NON-Gutteral vocals (Higher screaming, but not Black styled vocals), tons of sections with synth sounds, super long and majestic intros (Best case SPACE DM scenario is EACH track has an intro), hopefully a track with super serious talking/narration (if in character as a cosmic lord, even better) either right at the start, in the middle, or at the very end of the album. Lyrics about either scientific stuff regarding space, or about how huge the universe is, or how you are a cosmic lord, other related space/cosmic/universe/stars concepts are valid. NO EP's, albums ONLY. Cover art MUST be images of space (Horsehead Nebula can only be used if you were an oldschool Space DM band): either Hubble photos, or a painting of a spacescape or a craft. A space warrior on an obviously alien planet is acceptable. Terrible photoshop covers are a fearful inevitability, but they are frowned upon by SPACE DEATH METAL purists... The overall atmosphere is not supposed to be gross or offensive, but the music HAS TO BE DM because only DM can capture the amazing expanse that is limitless space, this is music of majesty. Cheesy Sci-Fi samples are acceptable, especially if treated with echo to make them more "atmospheric" (Obscure sci fi samples are a plus). Logos should be insanely complex, but should be weird and geometrical and not splattery... Oh yeah, SUPER LONG SONGS.
DiS barely functions, it stripped out my quotemarks and everything outside them for some reason...!?
Me And You Vs The World
Keep going if you feel inclined to.
I put it in here and not in the music board because I didn't think it would get many replies on the music board.
The story of The Dream Sequencer continues the plot found in The Final Experiment, starting in the year 2084, when the final world war wiped out all life on Earth. During the final years of fighting on Earth, a number of humans escaped to live on Mars. These people brought supplies with them, but with Earth ravaged, there was no way to replenish their resources, and soon almost all humans perished. The Dream Sequencer tells the story of the last human being alive, living alone on the Martian colony.
Born of the earliest settlers on Mars, the colonist never lived on Earth, and could only experience it through a machine known as the Dream Sequencer. Developed by scientists on Mars to curb boredom, the Dream Sequencer uses a form of hypnosis that allows the user to travel back in time to their youth, or even farther beyond, to previous incarnations of their persistent selves.
The colonist uses the machine and revisits his own youth, living on Mars, and eventually views many of his past lives: a woman fighting in the war of 2084, Queen Elizabeth I overlooking her fleet, a man present at the building of Stonehenge, and even the first human being to live on Earth, among other lives. Each track on The Dream Sequencer revisits one of these past lives.
