ALGO-RHYTHM: Scientific Musicals, Labocine


ALGO-RHYTHM (AT/SEN/UK) is part of the programme Scientific Musicals on TV-Station / VoD-Plattform Labocine (US) – January Issue #83 

“Operas, concerts, performances, music videos, chants and spoken word – we present to you “Scientific Musicals” to kick off this new year. Moving away from the passive score, the music is in the propeller of these narratives. Our musicians – animals, human, plants, machines and hybrids – are expressing themselves in response to their situations. What happens when we migrate from speech to song? Do musicals need to be harmonious or does dissonance have its place in the musical genre. A sonic rupture indicates a gaping wound in our bleeding habitat. Perhaps, a world in crisis captured in images is more attuned to disturbing sonic interferences. How do we make sense of scientific practices and experiments through music.  These musicals defy the very nature of a science film or a musical or both.”
