“A brilliant slice of bedroom pop, infectiously catchy and rough around all of
the right edges…A wild, rag-tag, day-glow world that exists both a millennia
ahead of present time and one step in the past. Every frame is filled with
wonders that are easily recognizable, yet slightly out of place. Like an
antique store in the future…Not to be Missed.”
SCI FI SOL is a transmedia co-production between TUGM and Chicago outsider artist MELODY NIFE. Watch it online HERE!

SCI FI SOL is adapted from the album of the same name produced in 2003 in Amsterdam by indie electro-pop wunderkind MELODY NIFE. Originally conceived as a soundtrack for an imaginary science fiction epic, SCI FI SOL (The Movie) was a dream nearly abandoned before MELODY NIFE met underground moviemaker JOSEPH R LEWIS while they were both touring the United States performing educational theatre for schoolchildren. JRL & MN began a close friendship and occupied idle times by discussing what a possible SCI FI SOL movie adaptation may look like. After many years of daydreaming, they agreed to undertake the mission of creating “the most epic no-budget science fiction fantasy of all time.”
SCI FI SOL was shot as a silent movie and uses the original album of music, played from beginning to end, as the entirety of the movie’s soundscape.
