MUMURS OF EARTH is a concise story of the Creation. The title ‘Mumurs of Earth’ is borrowed from the two discs that was sent out in space with the Voyager-expedition 1997 containing images, music and other info, presenting humanity to other life forms in the Universe. This fantastic and naive idea was part of the sci-fi-golden age of the seventies. A time when films like Star Wars, Moonbase Alfa and Close Encounters of the Third Kind were made, and when arcade games such as Space Invaders, Missile Command and Ateroids conquered a whole generation. At the same time the disco- and techno king Giorgio Moroder filled the dancefloors with his music. Mumurs of Earth is a scifi-dystopia inspired by this epoch, where Lars Arrhenius visualizes the history of our origin and future.
