Eleven Theatres is a 72 minute song cycle that represents the first official release of The Atomic Bomb Audition. A dense array of sonorous excursions incorporating epic fuzz guitars, stomping folk melodies, altering theremin solos and electro-acoustic ambience conceptually united by the story of a young boy theatre-hopping at his local multiplex. These song-suites reflect the evolving emotional impressions of a raw psyche bombarded by incomprehensible myths.
This is instrumental avant-rock for films that don’t exist.

Track Name: The Creationist
Track Name: An Empty Theatre
The one, who is aware that both knowledge and ignorance, should be pursued together, overcomes death through ignorance, and obtains immortality through, knowledge.
However, demonic persons are deluded by, ignorance, wealth, and false prestige. They seek further wealth through schemes and say to themselves "I must kill all of my enemies. There is none so powerful, and rich as I."
Thus perplexed by various anxieties and bound to illusions, they become too strongly attached to sense any true enjoyment, and fall down into hell.
