The Singularity Audio Drama
By The Singularity Project
Based of the musical stage play "The Singularity", which was first presented in 2019, The Singularity Audio Drama takes us into an unknown time, but a time not so different from our own, where an oppressive physical and psychological wall separates humanity from itself and a totalitarian entity known as The Singularity controls all means of expression and interaction. With the resurfacing of a long lost prophecy, a new era of consciousness will ignite a movement that may allow the world to see and understand itself for the first time in a brand new light.
Episode III: Oblivion
Something has happened where The Wall ends and The Lake begins. Now the two inhabitants of The Singularity will never be the same again. Their paths had crossed before but neither was aware of the dark past from which they both came. Now with the full power of the prophecy of The Lost Chord awakened the two inhabitants will come to know and understand their dark past and the ties that bind them. Blue Ghosts!

Episode II: The Vision After unlocking the powers of the prophecy of The Lost Chord the two inhabitants on opposite sides of The Wall struggle to grasp what little they still understand about this new reality. "What just happened?" the two voices said in unison. At their meeting point, where The Wall ends and The Lake begins...nothing is what it had seemed to be just moments before...only how could there be anything else? This separation is all they have ever known....

Episode I: The Awakening
The Singularity Audio Drama Episode I: The Awakening "The Singularity is here to protect you, empathy is for the weak"... the loudspeaker of a helicopter drones overhead. The wind is picking up and strange sounds can be heard on both sides of the narrowest stretch of a tributary at the base of The Wall... where The Wall ends and The Lake begins... "I saw a figure near where The Wall ends and The Lake begins... on the other side... moving slowly the way I was moving... like a mirror... we didn’t speak... we didn’t have to... I walked up to the edge and I reached out across The Lake... I felt that I could almost touch their hand… then suddenly it was all gone... was it a dream?"

Tune in for the release of the first episode of The Singularity Audio Drama on Friday August 28th. Blue Ghosts! (night sounds) Cast: Male Voice: Alexei Galar Female Voice: Rachel Lucille Woodworth Arthur Sullivan recording courtesy of http://www.firstsounds.org/ Episodes to feature music and sound design from The Singularity Project https://linktr.ee/thesingularityproject The Singularity Project, is a multi-media collaboration between international indie musicians LittleStarRun, Rachel Lucille Woodworth (US) and Galar, Alexei Galar (Mexico). Their music spans influences and genres from bossanova, spaghetti western, and garage, to folk, flamenco, prog and punk. The two artists originally started working on a concept album in 2018 over distance while living 4000 miles apart, in response to the US Mexico border wall and the immigration policies of the Trump administration. The idea of a concept album evolved into a full on dystopian stage play/musical written and directed by Woodworth starring the two musicians, with both of them collaborating on the music and sound design. The theatrical version of the collaboration premiered in 2019 at The Scranton Fringe Festival and was enthusiastically received by audiences. When COVID 19 hit they decided to adapt the stage play into an audio drama.
