The Knife Writes A Darwinian Opera
Danish performance artists Hotel Pro Forma have commissioned the Swedish group, The Knife, to write the opera, titled 'Tomorrow in a Year', a creative choice which they state as "experimental and exploratory." The music is written for three singers who come from different backgrounds: electronica pop, classical opera and performance. They are the protagonists of the performance, displaying three ways of experiencing the world. Citing Darwin's perception of time, transformation and the non-linear potentialities of evolution as the inspiration for the work.
Tomorrow, In A Year
SYI: "Deep Cuts" is arguably the best electronic album of all time. Discuss!
