17 Pygmies | Celestina I

17 Pygmies, a band if noted for if nothing else, being stupidly ambitious, undertook a stupidly ambitious project. Originally a short story based upon the 15th Century classic novel La Celestina by Fernando Rojas, the recorded Celestina (in actuality the name of the spaceship) was envisioned as a three part, 33 1/3rd psalms/songs long science-fiction story mixing as many musical elements including progressive, psychedelic, classical and ambient as possible in an effort to create a unique musical landscape to match an imaginary, but somewhat based on reality, version of love and deceit in deep space.
