In the era of the Star Wars: Legacy comic book series, Jedi Knight Korvan Helios lives in solitude, surviving until the day when Cade Skywalker can be found. But is solitude the best way to serve the galaxy? It is a question he will be forced to answer when confronted with others on the fringe of society . . .
Tonight we are premiering a new fan audio production (a new audio drama by Rayzur's Edge Audio's Nathan P. Butler) via the Audio Feed, while simultaneously releasing the project as a new release via the Star Wars Fanworks website. While the feed tends to focus upon mostly classic fan audio, it also gives us a chance, when we have some advance warning, to provide you with new content alongside the Fanworks site's own coverage.
The new audio drama in question is Nathan p. Butler fan audio drama experiment, Solitude.
Star Wars: Solitude is an audio drama experiment by Nathan P. Butler, founder of Rayzur's Edge Audio. After creating Second Strike, Anthology, Nothing Changes, and Always in Motion, Butler "retired" from audio dramas, but returned in 2008 for Solitude, an experiment that was too intriguing to pass up.
Solitude is a "solo a capella" audio drama, the first of its kind in Star Wars fan audio. This means that every one of the project's eight voices is Butler himself. Every sound effect was created with Butler's own voice. Every bit of music was performed with his own voice as well. All that was used was Butler's voice and effects filters within his audio editing program, such as chorus, echo, or pitch shifting effects. No pre-recorded sound effects or music were used, nor was any original foley work outside of Butler's voice. Thus, Rayzur's Edge Audio asks, "What can one man do alone?" Solitude is the answer to that question.
