Electronic music and Choral singing are rarely put into the same context – and the hacker community is normally not notorious for its vocal enthusiasm. But while working on the soundtrack to ALL CREATURES WELCOME composer Thies Mynther, director Sandra Trostel and the conductor Ithea discovered with joy and astonishment that all this can be different. Originally conceived purely to accompany the credits, the song “Heaven Can’t Wait” was rehearsed as a four-part vocal by roughly 200 visitors at the 34th Chaos Communication Congress (2017) in a choir workshop organized as a free session, then recorded and sung at various flash mobs. Now the song is available for listening and sharing, released under a Creative Commons license and performed by the FAIRY BOT ORCHESTRA, featuring Tellavision, Johann Scheerer and the Chaos Communication Choir, at https://fairybotorchestra.bandcamp.com/releases
The soundtrack will be followed by an entire album of electronic choral music – accompanied by new, freely usable choral movements and remix material, parts of which are going to be made accessible on the CREATE YOUR OWN CULTURE platform.
THIES MYNTHER’S FAIRY BOT ORCHESTRA will be inviting people to sing along at informal gatherings and open workshops. In addition to the film, this provides participants with a direct and intuitive opportunity to experience the open-minded spirit, values and ideas in digital communities – Heaven Can’t Wait!
