For Depthcore XXX 30th release "EMPIRE"
look mom it's very green!

Naypyidaw is the capital of Myanmar (Burma). The name means "Royal City".
I heard of this first on a much too early saturdaymorning some months ago, my radio alarm wasn't switched off so it went on just before the 7 am newsreport started. Which was good because it gave me the idea for this piece.
Apparently a swedish journalist had managed what no other journalist in the world had before, to sneak a taperecorder through the well protected gates of this fresh new capital.
About 1 and a half a year ago (Nov, 2005) the Myanmar Government made it public that they intended to move all the high chiefs and top of the chain people, such as the royal family, military generals and politicians but also scientist and other experts to this new, said to be, ultramodern city called Naypyidaw. It's location was what interested me most i think. Naypyidaw was built, littleraly, in the middle of the deep Burmese jungle, with barely no communications at all to the outside world. Constantly guarded by the military, no video-, regular cameras or recorders had been allowed inside and it was all very mysterious, atleast for me in my half baked state of too-earlyness.
Basically the thought of this ultramodern royal city of kings in the middle of a deep jungle just stayed in my head all day and for weeks and days, until finally i sat down a couple of nights and poured it all out.

So here you go, i hope you like it.
And forgive me if anything i've written above is incorrect or misjudged, i'm no expert in this matter offcourse.

peace / magnus

I enjoyed your comment, perhaps even more than the image.  Are you a writer as well?  If not, perhaps you'll give it some thought.  Nice work on the art and the written explanation as well. :)
