U2 and Led Zeppelin have their own light shows at the Clark Planetarium, but for the first time a Utah musician will have a light show specifically designed for him and his debut, "The Atomic Clock."
Brad Stock is a Salt Lake City resident and traveling nurse who has worked eight-to-twelve-hour days over the last two-and-one-half years to finish his pyschedelic rock album, which exhibits Pink Floyd and Steely Dan influences.
In a phone interview, Stock said that the album is the culmination of a dream for him, with much of it coming to him as he surfed in Kauai.
The album is entirety self-financed, and one of the ways he saved money was turning to skateboarding for transportation, rather than the expense of driving a car.
The idea for a laser show came from listeners who told him that they were having visions listening to it.
"People will walk away [from the Planetarium] saying, ‘There are unlucky people who weren’t there to see it.’" He hopes that turn-out for this debut performance is so large that the Planetarium, and other planetariums around the country, will be persuaded to host the project more often.
