More about Libertaria:

Mind-blowing epic video game electronic music mashed with soaring sci-fi symphonic sounds and dramatic vocals unite in the long-awaited original soundtrack for Libertaria:The Virtual Opera, a new cutting edge machinima film by award-winning composer Sabrina Pena Young. Love the Hunger Games, Les Miserables, Repo: The Genetic Opera, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Blade Runner, or Phantom of the Opera? Add Libertaria to your sonic collection! Libertaria's music blows your mind into the next millennium!

In a post-USA dystopia the young teen Libertaria escapes from the GenTech Death Factory and pairs up with her addict father Simeon to blow up evil reverse-aging geneticists called the Collective. Searching for the mysterious Nurse that saved her life and is now buried deep within the dark soul of the Factory, Libertaria and Simeon lead a rag tag army of cyborgs, kids, and misfits against their high tech overlords. In an epic musical finale, Libertaria finds that she must save the world in order to save herself!

The Libertaria Film Soundtrack was produced entirely online with a talented cast from all over the United States. From rock stars to opera divas, the Libertaria cast dedicated two years to creating this incredible musical theater album. The Libertaria cast includes emerging opera stars Kate Sikora and Gracia Gillund, Miami-based actress Gretchen Suarez-Pena, indie rocker Matt Meadows and uber-genius Perry R. Cook, popular pop singer Joe Cameron, dedicated singer/pianist Yvette Teel and up-and-coming talents like Jennifer Hermansky. Film composer Patrick Rundbladh at P.R. Music Productions mastered the vocals for this exciting new rock opera album!

An award-winning composer, obsessive sci-fi buff, gamer, Latin diva, and super Star Wars fan, Sabrina Pena Young creates mind-bending futuristic multimedia works performed throughout Asia, Europe, the Americas, and Australia at venues like the Beijing Conservatory, the New York International Independent Film Festival, Art Basil Miami, Art Miami, Miramax's Project Greenlight, the Australasian Computer Music Conference, Turkey's Cinema for Peace, El Instituto de Habana de la Musica, and countless other venues. Recent projects include the film score for cartoonist Rob Cabrera's award-winning animated short "Monica" and the Creation Oratorio, a large scale apocalyptic multimedia choral work for women's chorus, electronica, and Africo-Cuban drumming ensemble.

In 2010 Young embarked on a new journey as she developed the idea of a virtual electronic musical. Starting as a short story about a young geneticist that found that she was experimenting on her own mother, the idea for Libertaria exploded into an epic tale about a young hero combating evil geneticists in a post-nuclear war world where the USA has splintered into several factions, the young and the old are preyed upon by the government, and the only hope for freedom depends on a secret Underground militia made up of cyborgs, children, and misfits led by a runaway teen rebel!

Libertaria is an animated machinima tale for our time, the proverbial hero tale of the underdog saving the world!

Music Secrets: How to Write an Opera, Part 1

Feel like writing an opera is only for big name composers with big budgets? Or are you willing to take the plunge and create a work in one of the most compelling and cutting edge musical opera? Almost two years ago I embarked on the largest musical production I have created to date -  Libertaria: The Virtual Opera. After writing the award-winning Creation Oratorio and dozens of multimedia works, I wanted to combine my love of the audio and the visual into a single large scale work.  Find a Great Dramatic Story You need a strong story to write a compelling opera. Fortunately you can easily borrow from thousands of public domain works and modernize them. Think of West Side Story (just a contemporary version of Shakespear's Romeo and Juliet) .   Many great operas use Shakespeare, the Brothers Grimm , and Biblical stories, all of which include interesting characters, strong themes, and action.   Libertaria borrows heavily from messianic stories, but is se

Music Secrets: How to Write an Opera, Part 2

Music Secrets: How to Write an Opera, Part 2 After the incredibly positive feedback that I had from Music Secrets: How to Write an Opera, Part 1 , I thought I would talk a little bit about the composition angle of writing, at least how I do it in regards to vocal music . Here's a quick primer for anyone learning some of the basics of writing vocal music for opera, musicals, classical music , etc.  1. The Sketch I have had several great teachers in my life - Dr. Clare Shore , Hilton Jones, Dr. Kristine Burns, Paul Reller , Dr. Frederick Kaufman, Dr. Orlando Garcia, Chuck Owen, etc. My composition prof (and USF SYCOM guru) Paul Reller helped me develop the composition technique that I have had for years.  Download the Libertaria: The Virtual Opera Soundtrack at iTunes When I have the time to go through the entire composition process (because sometimes I have to skip a step or two for deadlines), I will start out with pencil, paper, and a piano (or keyboard, in my case).

Free Classical Sheet Music and Free Opera Downloads @ Scribd

Sheet Music (Photo credit: jayneandd ) Awhile ago I decided that I would upload the bulk of my music scores and sheet music to sites like Scribd, the Petrucci Music Library , and for free sheet music downloads. Some musicians told me that it was ridiculous to give away my music. The truth is that I don't depend on music publishing sales of my scores, and I would rather inspire a young piano student, percussion ensemble, opera singer, grandma, bored music student, or music teacher to play and study my music than hold on tight to my copyrights and let my music scores collect virtual dust on my hard drive.  The Petrucci Library, Scribd, and all have dozens of free music scores available for choir, vocal solos, piano, percussion, orchestra, opera, multimedia works, and more. You can see a short list of available free sheet music by checking out the Scores page. You might want to check out scores to my modern opera Libertaria: The Virtual Opera , an ex

What Skills Do You Need to Become a Songwriter?

What Skills Do You Need to Become a Songwriter?  Becoming a successful songwriter is the dream of many musicians. But knowing how to write a song , learn an instrument, and make a successful musical career can seem impossible. Well, it does take a lot of work. Not everyone that wants to be a professional musician will succeed, and many just enjoy writing songs as a fun hobby for their enjoyment.  Do I need to Sing or Play a Musical Instrument? This might seem like a simple question, but it actually has a complicated answer. Why? Some songwriters never learned a single instrument yet can come up with great lyrics and catchy melodies. Others have played piano or guitar for years or are trained singers. So what is the answer?  As a songwriter, you need to understand different aspects of the songwriting process. That doesn't mean you have to have an incredible voice or be the best guitar player on the block. What it does  mean is that you need to know music. There is no better

What is Blue? and other Post Postmodernist Thoughts

1000 Pennies for Your Thoughts - NARA - 534149 (Photo credit: Wikipedia ) One of my many hats is online university instructor. I teach courses in Media and Music History. In my Media in American Society class, we discuss many aspects of media, including truth in media, media conglomeration, marketing, advertising, and the like.  Today my students had an intriguing discussion/debate online about news and partisan politics. The debate was a healthy one, with some students claiming that they see all sides, others describing their favorite political pundits, and others lamenting the lack of authenticity in the media today. In the end, the fact that there would be no answer to today's questions, largely due to the lack of authenticity and the inability to trust anything in print, online, on a TV, spoken by a political leader, etc. etc., I brought up a short discussion on postmodernism, postpostmodernism , and its effects on American culture.  Here is a small snippet that I though
