Massive Space Shuffle
October 9, 2019
Jazz approach is combined to a new style of electronic dance music. Human voices are used within emotional sound events and everyday announcements which fit to the topic or contrast them.
From Ape to Human
Three young couples who have known each other since their school days – i.e. known as a peer group – meet regularly in the loft of computer scientist Paul. They have fun together and are all enthusiastic dancers.
Due to the Corona pandemic, the meeting described in the dance drama takes a slightly different turn. Torn between youthful light-heartedness and caution, they decide to do without dancing. Instead, the very talented programmer Paul wants to show his latest electronic achievement “Alexis”.
A converted coffee machine with a connection to the internet and a good portion of artificial intelligence. He proposes to make a thought game about human evolution: “From Ape to Human”. “Alexis” should be able to produce a suitable music video for each part of the developing story at the first go. But “Alexis” proves to be even more intelligent than Paul ever thought possible.
The Stage Scene Before the Song
The three boys are visibly annoyed by Claire’s romantic series. They are eagerly awaiting the departure into space. Alexis has turned his background sounds down on sea surf, provoking Irina to the ironic comment that Alexis is about to fall asleep.
Faris is now pushing for the men’s program. At least the jump into orbit should be done before midnight. Jenny urges moderation and asks Boris to use his mediating skills.
Boris takes a humorous approach and claims that the Space Suttle is already filled up on the launch pad, and Paul addresses Alexis to start the vehicle. He has already noticed that Alexis doesn’t need any formatted commands to understand what is required of him.
Alexis produces music and videos on the fly in the stage play “From Ape to Human”.
