A Soul Science Lab performance is an exciting mix of music, culture, and forward-thinking education. The Make A Joyful Noize (MAJN) show is a multimedia universe that blends music, film and movement to capture the visceral and contagious energy of Black joy. This music is meant to inspire people to celebrate and re-imagine life through a lens of joy. Complete with a live band, vocalists and a visual installation, this is an unforgettable experience.

Film Screening

This virtual or in person screening is a collaboration between Soul Science Lab and partner organization. The screening is immediately followed by a Q&A with project creators Chen Lo and Asante Amin.

about the film

Creating Make A Joyful Noize is a mini-documentary that blends music, spoken word interviews, and dance to capture the visceral, contagious and unapologetic energy of Black joy. It travels from Brooklyn, New Orleans and Accra, Ghana to present Black joy as a healing force for transformation. Musicians Chen Lo and Asante’ Amin—the creative duo behind Soul Science Lab, lead you on a journey of spirit, pain, resistance, and self-discovery as they provide an all-access look into the creation of their forthcoming visual album—Make a Joyful Noize.

"We remain overjoyed to have been a part of the development of 'Make a Joyful Noize.'  Chen and Asante truly understand the need for art and experiences that tap into the potentials our shared community and celebrate the spirit of learners, music makers and imaginations of all ages.  It will be a long time before Carnegie Hall again buzzes with the energy, spirit, and yes, Joy, that Soul Science Lab brings with them when they walk out on stage."

Aaron siegel, Director of Special Projects for the Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall
