1201_Alarm is a collaborative
music project which is quite unlike any other, taking on board quantum physics;
some of the world’s best-known scientists; lasers; tesla coils; Manga and the
phenomenon of audio illusion, each track is uniquely head-spinning. Led by
multi-instrumentalist and composer, Steve Thompson, Hello_World
is the debut album by 1201_Alarm, a project which has inevitably taken over three
years to reach its conclusion, given the sheer scale of its concept, musicality
and collaborative nature. Telling the story of Mankind’s embracing of technology
over the last 50 years and looking ahead to future interactivity, the album
also features contributions from such disparate talents as Jim Al Khalili;
Helen Czerski; Libby Jackson; Aleks Krotoski
and Marcus du Sautoy.
