The transfigurations of the text
As an opera composer I will investigate and challenge the treatment of the text in contemporary opera production. The use of text machines and original language as well as the composers relation to the libretto as a whole and words and lines in particular are all issues involved in the question of how composer make use or not of the form and meaning of language. How to achieve a more productive and interesting interplay between the musical language and the spoken, communicating with the audience?
