Perfect Beings is based on Suhail Rafidi’s novel, TJ & Tosc: A Field Guide For Life After Western Culture, a science fiction adventure centered around the story of Salvador Tosc, an artificial intelligence who used to be a live man. This story is now converted into a prog rock opera by the powerhouse L.A. duo of composer Ryan Hurtgen and guitarist/producer Johannes Luley. Both men, veterans of the music industry, were looking for a challenge, a chance to raise the musical bar, to innovate in their field.
