The six tracks from Genomics! The Musical! now available for download from Bandcamp for you to listen to at your leisure. For a full listing please, some chances to listen to the songs, and download the album, please go to the Singing Science Bandcamp website. I hope you enjoy them!
Genomics! The Musical! is a one person show where the fundamentals of genes and our DNA are explained using a series of ‘musical mini-lectures’. Ideas are introduced with words, and then developed on with catchy songs performed with a video backdrop providing further insights into the science of what makes us us. All done with a light touch of humour to provide an ideal family edutainment show!
Themes cover Mendel’s pea plant experiments, the gene-RNA-protein relationship, variation and the phylogenetic tree. The Mendel song is the proud winner of the Geekpop most contrived lyric award.
The show can be tailored to child/teen or adult audiences, and can be performed in halls, schools, pubs and festival tents. In fact, anywhere with a sound system and a projector! Running time is around 45 minutes,
If you would like to book a show please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Many thanks go to the collaborators who work with making the music and videos that make this show such a success, and the Wellcome Trust Public Engagement Team for guidance and initial funding for the project.
