conference contributionposted on 23.03.2021, 11:57 by Lee Scott
Digital opera is an emerging music form that reimagines opera as an entirely mediated experience. This creative research contributes developmental practice and theoretical perspectives on an underdeveloped subset: opera for web and mobile media. Component artworks include 'The Village', a web opera (2015) and 'Fragments', a prototype mobile opera (2019).
This item contains a conference paper that presents the operatic context of 'Fragments' while discussing the artistic opportunities and technical limitations of creating location-based opera.
