Heterotopia's world premiere at OBERON was a huge success, playing to a sold out crowd on a cold, wet March evening!
Our rock opera and concept double album Heterotopia will be released on March 31st @ OBERON, the American Repertory Theater's second stage. The first-ever public performance will transform the music of Heterotopia into an immersive storytelling experience: a three-dimensional concert which audiences will be able to walk right inside and become a part of, integrating interactive video installation with musical performance. Schooltree is partnering with Sam Okerstrom-Lang (Samo), a Boston-based new-media interdisciplinary digital artist and designer, to create this experience at OBERON on March 31st, 2017. Samo will be activating the space with a video installation, accentuating the story of Heterotopia and bringing it to life through the body sensory experience.
The release of our rock opera / concept double album Heterotopia has been funded!
We're currently raising funds to bring this metaphysical fantasy rock odyssey into the world.
I've been keeping it hush hush but for the last year and a half I've been writing a libretto and music for a rock opera titled Heterotopia. It's my baby, my main focus, and the most ambitious thing I've attempted so far. It's still in progress but almost done, and we're performing a workshop performance of the initial draft of it at Cloud Club in November.
Plans to start recording it as a concept double-album in the spring. More details on that to come.
