Currently I’m composing a 2-hour science fiction chamber opera entitled Posthuman with the kind support of the Kone Foundation.
The performers include a conductor, four soloists, an AI soloist, 4-member choir, four dancers and a 10-member instrumental ensemble. Both singers and instrumentalists will be amplified and manipulated by live electronics and spatialization.
The libretto is written, by my request, by Finnish artist, director, poet, writer and Doctor of Fine Arts Teemu Mäki, who will also direct and visualize the premiere on October 2021 in Helsinki. The premiere will be given in Finnish with English subtitles.
