Ophwurld is Roger Rodgers & Kevlar Nuckler teaming up to create Aural Sculpture. Recently Alan Sitar Brown and Gary “The Jettman” Jetter have joined the group to complete the lineup. Their music captures the live energy of on-the-spot creation and improvisation which gives their music an honest quality found lacking in much of today's hyper-produced music.
Primarily instrumentals, their songs range in genre from trip-hop and reggae, to hard rock & roll. They incorporate many different genres in the mix including: Rock, Pop, Funk, Reggae, Electronica, Blues, Hip-Hop and Trip-Hop. Their music can be described as Experimental Science Fiction Rock, SpaceShip-Hop, & Roots Rocket Reggae, and all of it is very SCI-cadelic!

Black Knight Satellite (Rodgers/Nuckler)
According to monitoring agencies around the world, the Black Knight satellite has been transmitting radio signals for over 50 years now. Since the 1930′s astronomers worldwide have been reporting strange radio signals which allegedly come from the “Black Knight”. A Ham Radio operator apparently decoded a series of signals received from the UFO Satellite and interpreted it as a star-chart centered on the Epsilon Bootes Star System. According to the decoded message, the Black Knight satellite originated from the Epsilon Bootes Star System 13.000 years ago.

Notice the breakdown right around the 4:20 mark where the tune gets out there a bit.
