Parson resident and musician Infinity Solstice, Bright Wizzard of Destiny is releasing a new CD titled Moment of Conception and will be having a CD release event on November 30.
Calling the event, “The War is Over CD Release,” Moment of Conception will be Infinity’s fourth CD, featuring six new songs and 14 songs from his three previous albums. The CD is meant to be an anti-war album with many of the songs featuring anti-war messages.
Some of the songs included on the CD are Imagine a World Without War, Bring the Soldiers Home, and War is Over.
“We certainly do not need or want war, death or destruction,” Infinity writes, “We would simply like to enjoy a peaceful, productive planet that we can live on with our work, our family and friends. A place to manifest our personal passions in peace and safety on this beautiful, magnificent planet, our home; this sweet and glorious earth.”
Infinity has been working on the CD over the last winter and plays all the instruments himself, except the drums, and records the vocals in the studio.
The event at the Rockwater is going to be a combined art show, fashion show and music show. ManWoman, a Cranbrook artist who passed away in 2012, created the art that is featured in the album. There will also be ten ManWoman canvases at the show that will be available to purchase in addition to the CD.
While the album is currently only available in CD form, Infinity says it will eventually be available through Itunes as well. Overall, Inifinity hopes that his music can be inspiring to the people who listen to it and that the message will impact them.
“I hope my music will impress people to do some thinking and that it’s thought provoking,” Infinity said.
Infinity’s love for music began as a kid when his mom signed him up for piano lessons in Grade three. When he got into high school, he began the guitar, and since then, his love for music has only grown. His first CD was released in 1998.
The show and CD release will be Thursday November 30 at 8:00pm at the Rockwater.
