Caustic Blood's Confusion in The Heartland On Sale Now

When composer Mark Gordon Brown first conceived of this work in The Caustic Blood project then intention was to create a sort of industrial Opera (in the common, non-Latin, sense of the term Opera). This Opera would be performed with dancers and actors lip-syncing to work played via recording. Still hopeful some group will take on this task and can do so free form and royalty free with credit and with a video filmed and given to the composer. There is also extensive use of musique concrète in this work. All samples used are in the public domain and thus used under fair use laws.  
As for the inspiration for this work. It is derived from the composer's childhood in The United States in the 1960s and 1970s which was a time of great change and turmoil. This was a time when it really was not understand who news casts and such affected children and as such many children had a constant soundtrack in the background of this change and turmoil. This work is a sister piece to Caustic Blood's Dreams of America.
