What’s currently playing on Cosima’s iPod? We asked ‘Orphan Black’ co-creator Graeme Manson for a glimpse at the evo-devo clone’s playlist.
Graeme Manson: Cosima is totally West Coast, a Berkley brat. I like to think her academic tripster birth parents dragged her around to Dead shows as a kid. Then as a teenager, Bassnectar threw her on a bus to Burning Man and she never turned back. When Tatiana does her “Cosima dance” to get into character, it’s a beautiful and familiar thing. I can totally see Cosima loading up her art car with costumes and her tribe, and heading out to Basscoast, Shambhala, or Lightning in a Bottle.
Cosima’s musical flava is close to our original concept for the score of the show, as first discussed with our killa Composer, Trevor Yuile. It’s also the flava of Two Fingers (AKA Amon Tobin) who so righteously composed our opening credits theme. So what would Cosima call this playlist? Something like: “Trip hoppin’, dub steppin’, glitchy global goodness?” Or maybe just: “Bass music for Goddesses,” represented by my fave electronic artist of the Goddess variety, Andrea Graham, AKA “The Librarian”. Check out her sets! Then pack the van for Basscoast and some homegrown B.C. bass music with international guests. Check out Adham Shaikh, Matt the Alien, Max Ulis, Self Evident, and the latin breakfast skillz of Bassos Rancheros. Full lineup announced April 30.
