The original idea was a series of cartoons I was drawing about the cyclops hero, Brother Tadpole. These books of cartoons developed into stories about his adventures on earth and in space. Later on I started writing songs inspired by the cartoons. Finally, I wrote several children's musicals on subjects of peace, earth, space and holidays. The first musical 'Brother Tadpole, peace activist' was premiered at Discovery Green in Houston TX in 2008. For this musical I used some of the songs published in my previous album entitled 'Cantabile'. The next premiere was in Mardi Gras Museum in New Orleans, where my hero tried to help the people of New Orleans by working with scientists and Balvarian Crystal Creatures to help clean up the earth there. That performance was entitled : 'Brother Tadpole saves the earth'. The third BT musical was commissioned by the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and premiered there. The story was called: 'Brother Tadpole and the Space Wiggs save the earth'. This album is a selection of children's favorite songs from all the BT productions.... and Brother Tad lives on with many new adventures still to come. Since I started this Brother Tadpole journey, I have also formed my own children's interactive theatre 'Alchemist theatre' where children can perform, be artistic, creative and have a great time. Thank you Brother Tadpole for all the fun times spent playing with you!
