Premiere of “The Furies: Act 3” in Bing Concert Hall (June 9)

The first complete act of our LaptOpera (The Furies: A Retelling of the Electra story) has finally been performed in full! What an amazing night. Can’t wait to continue working on this act and starting to design the electronics and learn the voice parts for Act 1 (premiering this fall?) There will be a video of the performance in the near future, but in the mean time, here are some of great shots from the night.

Tethers attached to the soloists are yanked over the course of the piece by the players, causing both a compacting and descent of clustered chord tones while also physically bringing the soloists down to their knees as they begin to comprehend the gravity of their actions.
