Ismail Ka Urdu Sheher (IKUS is a 12 song music album that is intertwined with a science fiction graphic novel. A song for each chapter. The intent was to entertain audiences while educating them to alienated concepts of physics). The story of #IsmailKaUrduSheher draws on science fiction to narrate the journey of a futuristic Earth’s Large Hadron Collider experiment whose repercussions have had a ripple effect on the fabric of the universe, challenging the very existence of a distant planet. Ismail Alset, who is the foremost scientist of that world, stands clueless and follows ‘breadcrumbs’ in hope to find answers to the calamity, a journey which will lead to bigger revelations about the universe and his personal life.
