Road to Aacheron, a creation by composer, saxophonist, producer Rent Romus, is an original work of odd avant-garde musical suspense and mystery inspired by the writers of fantastic fiction of the 1930's. The project features musicians and vocalists from the improvisation, experimental and theatrical music communities interweaving abstract film.
