epilogue vol 1

V/A Aidol - Soundtrack by Leo Lawrence LP


Hyperdub’s first soundtrack release is Lawrence Lek's score for his debut feature film ‘AIDOL’. Lawrence Lek is a simulation artist who uses computer-generated animation to create virtual worlds that play with the language of science fiction, music videos and corporate world building. ‘AIDOL’ continues his on-going 'Sinofuturist' cinematic universe, which posits the creative theory that China's technological rise is an emergent form of Artificial Intelligence. 

‘AIDOL’ is a CGI fantasy that revolves around the evolving struggle between humanity and Artificial Intelligence; a shifting and seductive virtual reality, punctuated by the central character Diva’s songs and the voice of Kode9 as the unforgiving label boss. 

The soundtrack is a delicate lattice. Diva’s yearning vocals cast classical melodies over billowing, intricate arrangements. The instrumental tracks, produced with composer Seth Scott, are elegiac and beautiful, hybridising the film score archetype, folding in patterns from game soundtracks, vaporwave, and ambient fourth world music.
