While public performances stay difficult to organise, Genetic Choir singers are not only still creating music and meaningful moments every week with the dear old people in the Flevohuis in Amsterdam, but we are also suddenly present online, with music we created 5 years ago:
In a puppetry/dance video made by Kristien Sonnevijlle and Matt Jackson, Genetic Choir compositions from our second CD – Church Songs for the 21st Century – are featuring as a prominent ingredient to tell the non-verbal story of the warrior Onna Musha.
The film is part of the Indonesian international Puppetry festival Pesta Boneka and can still be watched until the 11th of November.
Watch below (Onna Musha starts at 42:30, and lasts 9 minutes)
There is also afterwards a nice Q&A with Matt & Kristien and the other makers who contributed short films to Day 4 of the online version of this festival.
In the amazing festival area named “When Puppeteers Cook” we can even watch them at home making apple pie! Don’t miss that… 🙂 Go here for the Apple Pie.
