Some tidbits of science music news to whet the appetite.
Tom McFadden has these Tweets to tempt us with a new project. It’s all I can find on it, at least for now.
Baba Brinkman has been working on The Rap Guide To Religion, seeking to explore the topic through various scientific avenues. It’s in previews in New York right now, and will be properly premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Brinkman arguably made his reputation as a performer – before Mark Pallen approached him to write about evolution – at the Festival. I expect this project to piss some people off more than his Rap Guide to Evolution did.
Finally, there’s a new track from A Capella Science. In the style of Eminem, “Eminemium (Choose Yourself)” Timblais tweaks his formula ever so slightly. His first rap track also tackles an ethical challenge facing scientists. It’s still as well-produced (both musically and visually) as “Bohemian Gravity,” “Rolling Through the Higgs” and “Massless.” But this time the fun is intercut with some serious food for thought.
