The SingterviewsA real time Opera – Vol. 1 (DVD)

Loré Lixenberg - The Singterviews
The first volume of the sung interviews by mezzo-soprano Loré Lixenberg (with Phill Niblock, Pauline Oliveros, Trevor Wishart…).
The Singterviews are a series of sonic encounters that make up different scenes of one, ongoing real time opera, conceived in 2012.
Volume 1 DVD of The Singterviews is with composers, forming an opera film using extended voice and operatic voice to communicate with the guest. The composers—who previously composed for Loré Lixenberg—are invited to speak or sing back as they like.
In a live performance of The Singterviews, a character called PANIC selects a stranger through observing the audience via CCTV cameras, to be in her panic room that is a space capsule, in which all the music of the world is preserved, the idea being that PANIC and her chosen one are the last beings alive at the end of the world.
