The Wings of Daedalus

On the website of the Associazione Italiana Opera Lirica Contemporanea

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.
