Burritt-Doomsday Machine, The (SP)-4T/P - Product Information

The Doomsday Machine is named for an episode from Star Trek, my favorite science fiction series of all time. The "Doomsday Machine" is an enormous weapon, both in size and strength, that was left adrift in space. This war machine was capable of destroying whole planets and was discovered, of course, by Captain Kirk and his crew. The Enterprise ultimately conquered teh "Doomsday Machine" by feeding it another star ship that was set to self destruct. My "Doomsday Machine" is meant to be an aurally and visually captivating work that explores a multitude of wood, metal and membraned sounds in an explosively energetic dance.
