This offbeat, dreamy and humorous illustrated novel tells the story of aspiring musicians who leave everything behind to make their "Beams" (big + dreams) come true in the fabulous city of Polybeams.
Success seems obvious ― and easy ― with the Help Force, creative cool tools, and an entire city built on and for Big Dreams. But what secrets hide below the surface and what does the Help Force really do? Adventures and answers abound, as the Beamers explore, take action and discover their freedom.
Set in a bright fantasy world where everybody is forced to be "special" and work on a creative project, Birdrider reflects on what it's like to make music, dream and love in the 21st century.
This ebook is complemented by a double-album soundtrack, written and performed by the protagonists band, Birdrider. To create an interactive reading experience where sound merges into the narrative, Birdrider songs have been fragmented and remixed into more than 50 “sound bytes” that are scattered throughout the book, being truly “in the moment” with each story.
At the end of the book, you will find a link to listen to the 2 indie-pop albums!
