Soul Science Lab
Make a Joyful Noize

7:30 pm Thursday, March 23, 2023

Soul Science Lab — a duo featuring emcee and songwriter Chen Lo and composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Asante Amin — specializes in music and multimedia production, live performance, and culturally responsive arts education. 

Black joy is entertainment, therapy, self-love, and salvation. Make a Joyful Noize — commissioned by Carnegie Hall — merges music, film, and movement to express the visceral and contagious energy of Black joy as a force for inspiration and healing.

Lo, who graduated from Penn State with a degree in media studies, and Amin have produced programs with arts institutions including Lincoln Center, Harlem Stage, SXSWedu, and Classical Theater of Harlem.
