A Noise Opera: The Conductor Wakes
Spokane October 15th, 2016

Concept, score, lyrics, production 2016 by Confinement Loaf with spells by Uta Plotkin.
A tale of a world controlled by the conditions of our contrivances where humanity, machines and magic vie for the illusions of power. Nine musicians, with backgrounds in metal, experimental and classical will perform from an open form score written for: sound generators, percussion, field recordings, keyboard, voice and live video projection.

the characters

The Oppressed: The desire for power and the struggle for autonomy.

The Presider: The solo voice of power organized through a system of offenses.

The Orator: The power of memory presented through a diary of humanity.

The Conductor: A bodiless controller, presented as a live video projection, who exists only for power.

The Omnipotent Being: A force of ultimate power.

The Minstrels: The instruments of power.

Together they conjure an experimental cauldron of floods, storms, spells, and battles for the ultimate tragedy of triumph.
