Christopher Young scores audio drama The Lost Children of Planet X
Caldera Records presents Christopher Young’s and Bob Badway’s concept album “The Lost Children of Planet X,” a spoken word drama filled with surrealism and dream logic as well as countless Easter eggs in terms of casting and the lines delivered. Young, best known for scoring HELLRAISER, SPIDER-MAN 3, THE GRUDGE), himself appears as the booming voice of King Everett, while also delivering a few odd quips here and there, including his personal favorite, “Help me God, please help me!” As a bonus, eight purely instrumental tracks are included that accompany the adventures in space.
“The Lost Children of Planet X” is a highly unusual album – not only for Young and Caldera Records. We hope that people will find great joy in going on this 80-minute psychedelic trip.
The 27th CD-release of Caldera Records features a detailed booklet with commentary by Gergely Hubai, elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas and Helmut “Dino“ Breneis, who provided the original illustrations. The CD was produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.
