“An electric bass, upright bass, mellophone, piano, dancer, 5 opera singers… Music composed by 2019 Baker Artist Awardee, Scott Patterson. Come to Light City and see Afro House’s Astronaut Symphony perform Act II of its Afro-futuristic opera-ballet.
Levi, a brilliant military scientist with a unique spiritual knowledge of space and time creates a second sun. The unprecedented devastation of his sun brings the nation’s inhabitants near extinction.
The latest ground-breaking production from Afrohouse is an exploration of the crossroads between African spirituality, mathematics, and physics, poetically weaving “time and space” within the movement and music. Inspired by the experience of spiritual possession in the black southern gospel tradition and similar experiences within the Afro Punk Movement, this piece utilizes a soundscape that encompasses the styles of punk music, 20th century French music, and southern gospel music”…-Afro house
