Brad Stock lights up Clark Planetarium
First Published Jul 19 2012 01:23 pm • Last Updated Jul 19 2012 01:23 pm

U2 and Led Zeppelin have had 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-12-hour days over the past 2 1/2 years to finish his psychedelic rock album, which exhibits Pink Floyd and Steely Dan influences. In a phone interview, Stock said 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 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 turnout for this debut performance is so large that the Clark Planetarium, and other planetariums around the country, will be persuaded to host the project more often.
