Interplanetary rhythms, extraterrestrial sounds, sonic fiction: In three chapters, Cosmic Awakening explores the connections between science and fiction conveyed by the imaginative power of music. Is it true that no one can hear you scream in space? How loud is the sun? And what does it sound like when robots sing along to Sun Ra’s Space Jazz? Led by Sasha Perera and Sarj Lynch, an android crew searches for answers to these questions between Martian chords and ultrasonic experience.

Speakers: Sarj Lynch, Sasha Perera. Editing and production: Julia Vorkefeld. Recordings: Matthias Hartenberger. Concept and script: Arno Raffeiner.
