The Wings of Daedalus
Website: 01 Apr 2005
By: FedericoPlacidi

On the website of the Associazione Italiana Opera Lirica Contemporanea
http://www.aiolc.it/videoselect.htm

Science fiction meets contemporary opera in these riveting video excerpts and images from The Wings of Daedalus, a multi-media opera by composer Maurizio Squillante and sound designer FedericoPlacidi. Cyborghian protheses by Stelarc and live vocal processing through Kyma blend with computer-generated images and live singers on stage in disturbingly beautiful scenes. The myth of Daedalus serves as a metaphor for humanity's self-enhancement through technology, through the group mind, and finally progressing to the spiritual realm of pure energy. Whether you are a fan of science fiction or a devotee of contemporary opera you will find these videos both fascinating and thought-provoking.
