by Santiago Blaum.
"Switch On - Konferenzoper uber der Himmelfahrt der elektronischen Musik als barockes Bild" was written and directed by Santiago Blaum, premiering at Hebbel am Ufer (Berlin) in october 2010.
This Opera posits parallels between the invention and popularisation of the synthesizer and 16th century Florence, when Vincenzo Galilei and his friends accidentally invented the opera: analysis and synthesis. My role was (working with Santiago's musical arrangements) to programme the 'Baroque Synthesizer Sounds' of the piece, alongside 2 pieces of original music.
