Can They Decode Our Music?

Can They Decode Our Music?

On this week's ABOC with our regular trio of culture vultures, it's all about pushing the human frontier and adding a bit of colour to our perceptions. Matt gets the ball rolling by broaching a topic quite literally out of this world - humans sending music clips out into the universe as models of our cultural relics. Kam then transports us back to Earth as he introduces the novel art of colourising black-and-white images, as practised by Brazilian colourist Marina Amaral. To round things off Azmyl explores the question of whether many of us are overly obsessed with perfecting our technical skills instead of letting our raw idiosyncrasies come through.
