Product Notes

Justin K. Rivers and Nathan Von Krieg present a unique blend of original writing and public domain prose and poetry, including work by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, William Blake, Patrick Henry, William Henry Harrison, and the ancient roman poet Catullus. The Magic Door maps the rise and fall of humanity, from mystical origins and lofty ideals, to society's macabre descent into chaos. A tempestuous stew of voices and genres sparks to life, set to original music by pianist Matthew Lawrence Tobey, with electronic music by guest composer Pi of Square-Wave versus Sine-Wave. This unique album is in the tradition of Ken Nordine, Jack Kerouac, and the Firesign Theater, combining multiple musical genres with prose and poetry from offbeat public domain sources, plus original works, illuminating the tragedy, grit, and grotesqueries of everyday life. 1. Through the Magic Door/Overture (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, adapted by Rivers and Von Krieg) 2. Casual Genesis (Rivers and Von Krieg) 3. First Song of Experience (William Blake) 4. Lighting the Lamp (a speech by Patrick Henry, with music by Pi) 5. Fatal Inauguration (inaugural speech of President William Henry Harrison, with music by Pi) 6. Stop Stealing My Napkins, Please! (Catullus) 7. The Fly (William Blake) 8. Strawberry Independence (Von Krieg) 9. Jade (Rivers) 10. Odorous: To Rufus (Catullus) 11. Second Song of Experience (William Blake) 12. Playing Pieces (Rivers) 13. Summer River (Rivers) 14. South Street Stranger (Rivers) 15. Shadow Town (Rivers) 16. Third Song of Experience (William Blake) 17. Triumph of the Black Swan (Rivers, Von Krieg, Blake) 18. The Summons Back (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, adapted by Rivers and Von Krieg)
