In what may be the most unlikely artistic collaboration of this year, the Genetic Choir will create new music for the piece “Born on this Planet” by Bunraku company Mokugu-sha on 22nd and 25th of September in Tokushima, Japan.
After giving vocal workshops and concerts coming weekend in Hiroshima (see here), the Genetic Choir Ensemble will travel to Tokushima province where they will meet with master puppeteer Kanroku, who is one of the most prominent performers and teachers of this ancient puppeteer tradition.
For a new play that he created in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster (“Born on this planet”), he asked the Genetic Choir to create new all-vocal music, which will be premiered on the 22nd and 25th of September in Japan. First in Tokushima city, and the second performance in one of the ancient village puppet theatres (Kitagawa Nouson Butai ), up in the mountains of Tokushima province.
We can’t tell you how excited we are! 😀

While the Loop-Copy-Mutate project of the Genetic Choir is in further development, Thomas Johannsen has been invited to the International Symposium on the Histories and Practices of Choral Singing after submitting this article that describes the collaboration of the ‘human sampling organism’ of the Genetic Choir with computer music programmers working on computer listening and music creative systems.
The Symposium will happen in Lund, Sweden, from 19-21 October 2016.
Travel funding is still being sought to see if a delegation of the Genetic Choir can attend the conference in person.
