Album Notes
Mark Baughman writes songs about things that really matter. In Energie, his third rock opera, he uses the story to explore how genius happens, what is real and what is fake in today's world, and what is real love.

Energie is the story of Nikolai, a theoretical physicist who has discovered a way to create energy with virtually no cost or damage to the environment. Nikolai’s companion Larkin is also a theoretical physicist who is doing work on String Theory and the idea of multiple dimensions that we can’t see, but Larkin has an impediment where she can only seem to communicate using one part of her brain, using formulas as language instead of words. In fact, Larkin is living in two dimensions at once.

Humphrey Repton is the media-savvy head of the newly created Boston University Center for Advanced Physics and Humphrey recruits Nikolai, Larkin and others to do cutting edge scientific work under his auspices. When Repton learns of Nikolai’s discovery, he presents Nikolai to the world as his protege, and claims some of the credit along with it. While Humphrey is setting up the testing to prove Nikolai’s discovery is real, Nikolai gets tricked by a reporter into calling out Humphrey as a phony media-hound.

Hurt and betrayed, Humphrey falls into the arms of a group of oil, gas, utility, and green energy leaders who know that Nikolai’s discovery will mean the end of their industries and wealth. Humphrey becomes their agent, carefully working to sabotage the testing of Nikolai’s discovery. But Larkin, who is generally ignored because of her peculiar social skills, has realized that the test that will prove Nikolai’s theory can also bring her fully to one dimension.

The big test was set up to fail, but in a climatic scene Larkin is able to hijack the machinery and both bring herself to our dimension and prove Nikolai’s discovery.
