The Village opera

Uncategorized

The Village reveals the comings and goings of a virtual world that exists in parallel to our own. Events are described from the perspective of 7 fantastical characters through music and animation in a series of five weekly episodes. Check back on May 1, 2015 for the first installment.

You too can reside in the village…

We invite you to create a ‘villager’ and be part of the opera’s digital chorus. Villagers react to story events and respond to character activity by posting short text comments. You may assign your villager a name and a personality (e.g. ‘a trickster’ or ‘a samaritan’) to help shape their identity. All contributions by the digital chorus will appear in the opera, serving to enrich the story and steer its evolution. Go to the How to Interact page for more details

Like The Village Facebook or Renren page for updates on when new episodes are available, and visit Twitter @VillageResident for a live feed from the main characters and selected members of the digital chorus.

Creating Destiny: Eondwyr – ANIMATION, MACHINIMA, MUSIC, MALLETKAT

Uncategorized

Improvising on a few themes for the final movement of Destiny: Eondwyr for malletkat and multimedia machinima. Starts with a very basic theme that is a variation on the motif used in the rest of the work. Then I extend the idea into several distinct sections. During this work, the main character enters the underground and must defeat MORLOKE, the evil underworld overlord while saving the Child of Light. Each section is optional in performance, and there is a lot of tweaking to be done. This is just one version that I have played with.

Ruff Intro section from new piece Destiny: Eondwyr for Malletkat and Comic Book Panels (yeah, for real!). Music and Fantasy Collide in a New Multimedia Work by Award-Winning Composer Sabrina Pena Young. Commissioned by Percussionist Kurt Gartner from Kansas State University.destinyelectronicmusic.wordpress.com/about/

Destiny: Eondwyr is an unusual work commissioned for Malletkat and Multimedia. Using video gameplay, the performer will choose which portions of the piece to perform based on musical “quests”. Each quest corresponds to a specific element of music: melody, rhythm, or harmony. In the end, the performer’s avatar of choice will “fight” the end Boss using a combination of the different elements. Because there are many possibilities the end work will always be slightly different than another performances, even if by the same musician.

The end work will involve over 50 original comic book panels to be triggered by the performer live as he or she performs the work in Ableton Live using a Malletkat. After creating the world’s first comic book opera, Sabrina Young is excited to embark on another sci-fi/fantasy journey that explores music technology in an exciting and new way.
