Recorded at Serene Dominic's home on GarageBand, this song cycle was conceived as a literal song-by-song retelling of the movie Vertigo and serves as the demos for a work-in-progress musical titled "A Swimming in the Head" for which Serene Dominic is writing the book for right now. He hopes to have it ready to be performed in Phoenix by late 2010. That's cutting it close pretty but as the RPM Challenge proved, anything is possible if you don't mind the rush.
