RPM 2007: Door
In February 2007, I decided to participate in the RPM Challenge, in which I undertook to write and record an album in one month. True to my geek roots, I decided that my project would be a concept album based upon the science fiction TV series "Farscape". The project, entitled Door, retells the major events of the show's second season from the perspectives of a variety of characters. I completed it with two days to spare. Check it out!
