Reflections of timeless struggle, self-fulfilling prophecy, and age-old triumph, with flashes of modern affectation. A fluid and evolving seven-act performance; an epic tale of angst, hunger, tragedy, failure, and ultimately, hope. The dramatic opening of this musical/avant-theatre piece begins with the young voice of our seven year old narrator. She describes in 2 short lines what we are about to witness: seven perspectives of one king's war with himself. Moon & Moon provides the framework of a journey through an eternal human battle, borrowing from religious heritage and a colourful quilt of belief that draws upon the root myth of our collective humanity. Our story re-creates an archetypal battle that is not only historical fiction, but our own contemporary fact which exemplifies our self-destructive nature. Through the journey of witnessing a different character's perspective in each act, our king comes to the realisation that he is not only the walls which he has built, but the walls that have been destroyed by his own hand and command.

Points of Interest:

Contributions by members of An Albatross, Lewis & Clarke, Barkus Born and Stephonik Youth with guest appearances by Devendra Banhart, Gibby Haynes, and Bat For Lashes.

William Lemon presented 7 original blockprints along with the 7 corresponding audio tracks for each Act of Seven Acts of an Iron King. This special installation was part of the And Who Are You? Saatchi group show in NYC, and invited the viewer/listener to preview a track of the album while taking in the imagery of the corresponding print.

Inserted into each album is one of Lemon's original block prints on scented card stock, hand-brushed with Jasmine essential oil. This creates an olfactory association between the album, the live show, and the nature of the scent; it traditionally helps reduce apathy and anxiety, and is uplifting and stimulating in times of hopelessness and nervous exhaustion.

Each Act is from a different character perspective:
Act I: King's perspective
Act II: Foot Soldier's perspective
Act III: Victims' perspective (ghosts singing to the soldiers)
Act IV: Magician's perspective
Act V: Priest's perspective
Act VI: King's perspective (having accomplished mission, but still empty)
Act VII: King's perspective (realising he has manifested an illusion)

Packaging: standard cardboard digipak style, clear plastic tray, 10 page fold-out accordion style booklet insert.

Instead of a booklet, the album comes with a printed note by the artist, asking readers to sense the record's story, rather than analyzing the lyrics.
