    Lightbulb Rigel's RFZ from New Swabia

    Rigel's RFZ from New Swabia

    Professor Rigel, or "Wizard Rigel," had never shared the opinions of his former colleagues. He had completely disapproved of their theories and isolated himself totally. He was fed up with them. Those young modern scholars who claimed that all ancient civilizations thought the earth was the center of the universe and the stars and sun revolved around it.
    No! He shared the same ideas as in the Vedas, written many thousands of years ago. He took out his favorite book from the library shelf. He read:
    "O disciple, a student in the science of government, sail in oceans in streamers, fly in the air in airplanes, know God the Creator through the Vedas"

    He kept coming back to this passage, he smiled by the power the words gave him. Those were powerful words. And it was reality, not the usual mumbo jumbo he had been hearing on planet Earth before he left, escaping in his private "HANNEBU III". Thanks to the science of electromagnetic-anti-gravity drive systems contained in this book, he now shared the same knowledge as the engineers of New Swabia in Antarctica.

    These drives relied on Hans Coler’s free energy converter coupled with a Van De Graaf band generator and Marconi vortex dynamo (a huge spherical tank of mercury) to create powerful rotating electromagnetic fields that affected gravity.

    But what he didn't know was that Captain Herman was on his trail. Herman had been spying for months and built a replica of Rigel's RFZ (RundFlugZeug). He found out how to manover the disc by studying documentary films from the test grounds of "Base 211" in Antarctica. It was also in one of those movies that in which found out about the South Pole wormhole in Antarctica, from which Rigel within some seconds disappeared from planet Earth one day.

    Well, this is something different from you. It's in the mold of Buck Rogers, retro science fiction.

    This is pretty cool. It should be an interesting story.

    It's well supported with your music.

    "Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers and Ming" hold on you have a new rival in town! Here comes Wizard Rigel and Captain Herman.

    This is definitely retro and fits the mold of the genre quite well.

    You have a funny sounding voice though

    I like how you use the effects and voice over to set the stage for this piece. If I have any criticism and it is only a personal preference, I would like to hear the background music a little louder. The music just seemed to far back in the mix to me.

    Thanks for continuing your Sci-Fi journey with us!

    Hi Rich,

    I did a remix and adjusted the levels between speech and music!
    Your suggestion was right on the money!

    This is an odd one from you. but I did like it a lot.

    How did you do the voice?

    Reminds me of Steven Hawkings.

    Well done
