Septimus Orion in Context

When this CD was released released in 2008, the cultural elements that make up Septimus Orion were not so obvious. The questions about gender that are raised in Clifford Meth's Queers were not as well recognized as they are now, in the post-Kaitlyn Jenner world. The exploration of fetishism has broken through to popular culture on a large scale with Fifty Shades of Grey. Caged highlights these unusual aspects of our society that make it so intriguing. We recognize the freaky and geeky as powerful creators of culture. Those who inhabit the margins are exploring the outermost regions of space.

Space exploration has become an in creasingly popular subject.We have the New Horizons Probe flying by Pluto, NASA posting space sounds to SoundCloud, and t.v. shows like Ancient Aliens. The time is now for the world to embrace the power of the "other".  Some of the cosmic information that returns to earth can be recorded as perceptable sound, just as music can be transcribed as an image.


What is this project?

CAGED is the first element released as part of the Septimus Orion project. This CD is a collaboration of efforts from an diverse group of world class musicians and other artists. We expect that you have listened to this work in its entirety.  Producer Romulus was able capture and deliver these unique performances. We are interested in hearing your thoughts and reactions upon listening. Please leave your comments and ask your questions. Although our first offering is an audio recording, this project cannot be fully realized without multiple media outlets. We'll get to those.

Consider these dualities:

Attraction / Repulsion
Domination / Submission
Aggression / Passivity
Exploration / Retraction
