2022 begins with a bang, and an ambitious set of goals for all branches of #BlueDorian’s production department...
Daughters of Time Season One careens headlong towards its inevitable conclusion, which sees a final and dramatic confrontation between the forces of light and darkness. Will Gwen and her team of neophytes be vanquished, or will they defy the odds and stand victorious over Arcturus and his mighty legions? (Two new ebooks are in the works: Episodes 11, and 12. Catch them at the BlueDorian Store.)
On the music front, three new releases are set to hit the shelves in Q2, beginning with a Rough Cuts version of Adam Farouk’s very first ever original song: “A Place to Be” (1996), produced and recorded by Pierre Grill at Rendez-Vous Recording, Honolulu HI, followed by “Little Ray of Sunshine,” a radio-edit version, performed by Adam Farouk, of the de facto “title track” of last year’s concept album release, “Ray of Sunshine,” produced by Anthony J. Resta, and recorded by Karyadi Sutedja at Studio Bopnique, in Burbank, CA; an EP of five live tracks by the Adam Farouk Orchestra, taken from “AFO 2017: Live at The Nines” Sessions, recorded at The Nines Art Gallery in Harwich Port MA, rounds out the trio.
The MAJOR WORK for this year is a ten-song concept album based on material from the Adam Farouk rock opera “Continuity.” Continuity is a story that delves into the world of mental illness, as well as the types of tools and mettle required to either overcome, or else accept and learn to live with it. Over the past three months we've gathered a stellar cast of performers, be they vocalists or instrumentalists (listed below, with links) from far and wide, and we look forward to sharing clips and stories as we go along.
