In his latest "peer-reviewed rap" production, the research frontiers of neuroscience find a high-energy outlet in Rap Guide to Consciousness. Brinkman has teamed up with Professor Anil Seth, Co-Director of the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science at the University of Sussex, to explore the latest findings from the neuroscience and cognitive psychology of subjective experience. What is it like to be a baby? We might have to take LSD to find out. What is it like to be an octopus? Imagine most of your brain was actually built into your fingertips. What is it like to be a rapper kicking some of the world's most complex lyrics for cheering fringe audiences? Surreal. Zombies, locked-in patients, wannabe celebs, Google AIs, and Baba's infant son all make an appearance in Rap Guide to Consciousness, as he brings his signature mix of rap comedy storytelling to the how and why behind your thoughts, feelings, perceptions and desires. Mixing cutting-edge scientific research with projected visuals, crowd interaction, characters, comedy, and virtuoso rap storytelling, Baba takes you through the twists and turns of the only organ it's better to donate than receive: the human brain. The result is a truly mind-blowing multimedia hip-hop theatre performance - the perfect meta-medium through which to communicate the dazzling science of consciousness.
