Description

As part of their science fiction season, I curated a bespoke event for the British Library examining science fiction (literary and televisual) on musical content and aesthetics.

An illustrated on-stage interview with George Clinton, Nona Hendryx (from LaBelle) and Chuck Lightning from Janelle Monae's Wondaland organisation was undertaken to identify the links between on-earth identities, prejudices and lived experiences and those '... out there'.
