New Sounds

Inspired by Sci-Fi

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

There’s music inspired by Sci-Fi books & film for this New Sounds program.  Listen to the internet opera and sonic book by Mendi & Keith Obadike, “The Sour Thunder,” which consists of two simultaneous stories; Mendi traveling with a friend to study Afro-Dominican culture and tracing the slave trade through the Dominican Repulic, and that of a state called Solaika Dast, where scent is the method of communication. There’s also recent music by Londoner Pete M. Wyer, his “Planet 49,” a response to the Danny Boyle film, “Sunshine” about a mission in 2057 to set off a nuclear bomb to reignite our dying sun.
