Sing the body electric
2013 (English)Other (Other academic) [Artistic work]
Abstract [en]

SING THE BODY ELECTRIC! - A 2013 CORPORATORIO - is a new work that celebrates the human capacity to change her conditions and envision a new world with poetry and music. In seven embodied songs, four opera-singers perform new music with custom-built technology in a space charged with voices and with musical wires strung from floor to ceiling. The work is a cross-over between opera, oratorio and choreography - where movement of bodies creates music, sound, space and visual scenography. Energy is Eternal Delight! - the words by 18c poet William Blake are given new artistic interpretation in our environmentally vulnerable and technologically conditioned age.•This is a new work developed at the University College of Opera in Stockholm by Carl Unander-Scharin and Åsa Unander-Scharin in close cooperation with Ludvig Elblaus. The work is an embodied opera, a corporatorio, where music, voice, body, movement and space concur in the performance.•Textbook based on texts by Albert Einstein: The world as I see it, Walt Whitman’s “I Sing the body Electric!” and poems by William Blake.•Singers: Lisa Gustafsson, soprano, Alexandra Zetterström Büchel, soprano, Maria Sanner Konvicka, alt, Staffan Liljas, bass baritone •Emerging technologies, developed for and through the operatic artwork (Throat IV, the ScenOchSinneSensor, The Midi-Harp, The Virtual Viola da Gamba, and The Charged Room)•Music and textual compilation: Carl Unander-Scharin•Stage direction: Åsa Unander-Scharin•Technology development: Ludvig Elblaus, Carl Unander‐Scharin, Åsa Unander‐Scharin
CapeTownOpera teams up with Stockholm’s University College of Opera to present a pair of cutting-edge thirty-minute operas. Swedish composer Carl Unander-Scharin brings his innovative use of technology in performance to a setting of Walt Whitman’s I Sing the Body Electric, while Philip Miller creates a haunting exploration of the realities of working underground in a mine in Between a Rock and a Hard Place: A Dictionary of a Mining Accident.Stockholm 31 maj, 1-2 juniKapstaden 13-15 juni
