Having just released his latest album Days Of Summer Gone (2013) and the new Sky Architect album A Billion Years Of Solitude (2013), Christiaan Bruin is back with a brand new ambitious project: a 1-year musical series: The Black Codex.
Its concept is a unique one: during the course of a whole year, subscribers receive by email, a newly composed and recorded piece of music every week, together with illustrated lyrics, drawings, and many other bonus features. These weekly episodes will culminate in one epic storyline, with many characters, intrigues, adventures and much more.
Says Christiaan: "The Black Codex can be compared to a TV-series with weekly episodes, but in this case the story is told through music, lyrics and illustrations. Each week there will be lots of surprises, but also an element of familiarity and continuity. Musically, there's lots of freedom and room for spontaneity.
There's certainly a very adventurous journey ahead, as this has never been attempted before in a similar way, and this is my most ambitious project to date. It's like a concept album-deluxe."
The trailer can be seen already:
The Black Codex will take off on 5 January the 2014, and continues for the rest of 2014. Membership costs are 4 euro each month.
