science for sociopaths

An award winning interactive art pop project for musician, artist, and audience featuring a song cycle [set of related songs on a theme intended to form a single musical narrative] that explore themes of interpersonal and systemic trauma and resilience. The first song cycle, LIKE A MOTH by Maggie Cocco’s Science for Sociopaths, premiered at the Whangarei Art Museum for Whangarei Fringe 2020. Since then the show has accrued awards and honorable mentions including Best Music at Auckland Fringe 2021 and Best Ensemble Nelson Fringe 2022. Because every show is performed with a different local artist and includes audience participation, each iteration is unique and experimental. Songs are presented as rough skeletal musical ideas which take inspiration from audience and collaborators. The songs take permanent shape over the course of several shows, presented as the song cycle’s “Development Tour” and culminating in the recording of the finished song cycle and art exhibit featuring artworks created at Maggie Cocco’s Science for Sociopaths shows. Maggie Cocco Music is looking forward to premiering the second song cycle for Maggie Cocco’s Science for Sociopaths at Whangarei Fringe 2022.
