FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 12, 2012
THOMAS DOLBY ANNOUNCES “TIME CAPSULE TOUR”

March and April U.S. and Canada dates, including SXSW, will accent current album A Map of the Floating City with a touch of sci-fi

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — In the wake of his critically acclaimed album "A Map of the Floating City", and the groundbreaking FloatingCity.com transmedia game he co-designed, Thomas Dolby will embark on a 26-date North American tour this March, with a rather unusual vehicle in tow (pictured).

The Time Capsule is a chrome- and brass-plated road trailer that seats three. With handcrafted leather and wood fittings, and complex electrical wiring that could have been designed by Nikola Tesla, it resembles a Jules Verne/HG Wells-inspired time-travel machine. Inside is a high-tech video recording suite that allows a music fan or guest artist to upload a personal video message to the Future. The Time Capsule will be parked in the street outside each venue on Dolby’s month-long North American tour, and in front of select local radio and TV stations. It will capture hundreds of 30-second clips over the course of the tour, assembling them into an online video montage.

Fans will be able to walk up and step into the Time Capsule to make their own fully produced and effected digital 30-second video clip. The clips will then be automatically uploaded and viewable on a brand-new YouTube channel along with the individual user’s own Facebook and Twitter pages. The most viewed clips will win prizes. Dolby’s label Lost Toy People Records is in discussion with several potential sponsors for the project.

“If you had 30 seconds to explain to an alien visitor what went wrong with our civilization, what would you say?” said Thomas Dolby. “Our species may not be around on this planet much longer, so you might as well leave a welcome message for the next guys!”

The Time Capsule Tour kicks off at SXSW in Austin, TX March 12-17, and will take in 24 U.S. cities and two in Canada. A full list is at [link] while news, merchandise and additional perks are available at the Flat Earth Society fan club. Anyone joining before January 31, 2012 will earn a free download of an exclusive three-remix Thomas Dolby EP entitled “Return to Oceanea.”

Get them now, before they sell out!

This is going to very cool tour, and DeviantArt members have always supported Dolby's in the past, and now you can support it into the future! I had a blast working with Thomas to visualize this weird and wacky trailer and I can't wait to see the actual finished vehicle!
The base trailer is from a very cool company called Camp-Inn. Here's the model that is being customized: [link]

It looks like a modded teardrop camper. I got the e-mail about it this morning. :-)

Yup; the base camper design is from a custom company called Camp-Inn who makes amazing small campers ([link]), and Thomas has a friend who will be doing the custom fabrication based on my designs.
