A Spatialized Electroacoustic Opera.“Born in the Baroque period, the opera is making a strong comeback in this late-20th / early-21st century with the emergence of a new form of Baroque, the result of the globalization of information, racial and cultural melting pots, our historical knowledge of the arts, and the cohabitation of styles. This world-as-a-whole, as the synthesis of all other art forms, is a reflection of a society and an era, and it has to resemble our world through the use of modern technology and an audio-visual language that, in this age of interplanetary travel and computers, owes nothing anymore to the days of horse-drawn carriages. However, I thought it would be interesting to put this technology face to face with a timeless, quasi-mythological narrative where the author portrays two different ideas — social, political, philosophical — of Man. Thus are maintained the same issues of clear yet symbolic expression and high enough density of information to support all levels of audio-vision for all audiences. Here, technology (numerous loudspeakers, shifting points of view in computer-generated images, audiovisual rendering of various spaces…) serves humanity’s expression. Through this confrontation, technology rises above modern-day gadgetry to provide added value, or so we hope, as we believe it is more flexible and fitting to our current understanding of men and gods.”
