I have been collaborating on the creation and development of a storyline for an Opera with Writer/Director Karen Dee Carpenter. The music along with the mini opera was performed first as a work in progress at the Boston Court Theater with strings and singers. We are currently developing the work into a Virtual Reality immersive experience which brings the audience to a specific location where they will experience the operatic storyline. The enchanting mythological story takes the viewer/listener into a dark and mysterious realm where a Siren aims to lure a group of sailors to their death. VR provides a space for immersion to captivate the audience with music and visuals.
The project is currently at the stage of releasing a teaser/sizzle reel which was shot using a green screen and includes musical sections of the piece.
Virtual reality is an exciting new platform that I look forward to immersing myself in further with my company Emersion Music.
