Opera Singer Valerian Ruminski Releases Pop Music CD 'All of Us'
Skeleton Dances With The Man Who Fell To Earth on 'I Don't Know Where I'm Goin' To'
"All of Us is exactly how I felt while cooped up during quarantine and about everybody in the world experiencing the same pain, the same anxiety, the same restrictions and desperation as everyone else. The virus is universal and so is our humanity. Despite it being a downer it was also sort of inspiring that ALL OF US in the world, maybe for the first time in a very long time, could legitimately sympathize with every other person going through the pandemic."..Valerian
Valerian has been performing internationally for 25 years in major opera houses including the Metropolitan Opera in NYC, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Opera de Montreal, Musica Viva (Hong Kong), Opera de Monte Carlo, Opera Ireland and New Israeli Opera in Tel Aviv. Valerian is also the Founder and Artistic Director of Nickel City Opera, a non profit arts organization in Buffalo, NY.
I DON'T KNOW WHERE I'M GOIN' TO
"There is a subtle science fiction theme going through the record. This single is a dark vision of a man who fell to earth..my homage to Halloween. A stranger in a strange land like the Robert Heinlein novel..when you find out if he thinks he's an alien or not."
ALL OF US
Mixed by Award winning, multi platinum mixing engineer and producer Brian Reeves (U2, Elton John, Carlos Santana, Selena Gomez). "I dedicate this song to the NFL and their 'It Takes All of Us" season brand campaign. They have been a large factor in bringing All of Us back to a semi-normal state as the virus plays itself out.
LOVE IS NOT A TIME MACHINE
"..the whole idea you can't keep reliving the past, you can't keep going into the past to find love in the present. I wanted to use science fiction as the medium to relay the message and I'm a big fan of the film 'Back to the Future' so I was conjuring up my best Doc Brown and Marty McFly."
