an esoteric pop opera, is based on the legendary books on Atlantis “A Dweller on Two Planets” and its sequel "Earth Dwellers Return".
Inspired by the Atlantean science and technology (10000 B.C.), "Queen of the Wave" features unique instruments and equipment such as "The Great Stalacpipe Organ" (the largest musical instrument in the world), Edison's "Ghost Machine", Professor A.D. Conrow's "Psychical Predictor" and a 500 000 volt Tesla Coil Synthesizer.
The wondrous trip of the making of "Queen of the Wave" has been documented on five Album Companions, all available on this site. The last Album Companion contains liner notes from writers including Morgan The Escapist and astronomer Professor Esko Valtaoja and also a little thank you note from H.R.H Crown Princess Victoria.
Pepe donates all the profits from the sales of the album to John Nurminen foundation to help the Baltic Sea, one of the most endangered seas in the world.
