PANELS & PRESENTATIONS

Xenomusic.jpg Xenomusic - "What is Xenomusic and can we know it when we hear it?"

These and other questions will be explored during a panel that will take a look at music designed for alien races in various Science Fiction movies, television shows and literature. Members of il Troubadore will lead the panel with examples, both recorded and live, of some of the more interesting tunes and songs from this fascinating genre. Also discussed will be how to approach learning phonetically a language for singing songs designed for Alien races.
