About

For the first time, a CD of the ZKM electronic series is to be released that uses state-of-the-art technical procedures for sound production as an integral part of the musical staging of an opera.

The Wings of Daedalus similarly uses technology to build the sound substance. Here, not only methods of sound production or editing, but also movements of sound in space are used as a means of dramaturgical articulation. The artful integration of the voice into the quasi-orchestral/concrete musical development is striking. From a mixture of noise and pitched sounds Maurizio Squillante developed a sound libretto which functions as an inner narrator and captures the audience from the very beginning until the final notes fade away.
