A new multi-media opera that explores isolation, fragility, and kindness as unexpected connections blossom during a catastrophic solar storm
Dark Exhalation is a new multi-media opera for four vocalists and amplified live ensemble (flute, clarinet, viola, cello, double bass, electric guitar, percussion) that incorporates cinematic sound design, immersive sound spatialization techniques, and video projection to create a hybrid audio-visual experience. At its heart, this evening-length work explores the generative possibilities of fragility.
Prior to the work’s public presentation several musical and tech-focused workshops will take place to foster a collaborative atmosphere as well as to ensure the integration of all elements and quality of the public performances. Support is needed to cover musician’s fees and to offset the recording and production costs associated with the multi-media elements of this production.
