The Labyrinth


ABOUT THE ALBUM

The song "The Labyrinth" was originally written for my children. Before going to bed, we would sing. The song starts with one of my childhood fears -- being sucked down the drain. Each time we played the song I would pause in the middle... and ask them about their fears. Then, we conquered our fears before going to sleep.

The idea was incorporated in the world's first interactive music album "The Labyrinth". In 1995, albums hadn't yet been created for release on the Internet. As a webmaster pioneer, I was struck with an inspiration -- the world wide web was like a giant labyrinth. A game and soundtrack were created to navigate through the website avoiding pitfalls and finding the prize. From time to time, we update it with new things.

Inspiration came from David Bowie's "The Labyrinth" and Pink Floyd's "The Wall".
