Multimedia Show This Spy Surfs Runs Sept. 6-Oct. 25
Conceived, directed and performed by T. Colburn and B. Klay, This Spy Surfs "is a serialized mythic opera told instrumentally with surf and spy music, using computer generated vocalizations & multi-disciplined image events," as production notes describe the show. "Serialized mythic opera is a story form that keeps getting added to much like a soap opera. This is performed by musicians who neither sing nor speak, but play composed music couched in the vocabulary of surf (beach) and spy (film noir) music. Since the performers do not sing, computer generated voices are used to tell the story. All of this is framed in the theatric setting of modern media projection systems as opposed to traditional sets."
The work exposes the audience to the "metaphysics of actual experience via the conduit of fine art performance mechanisms thinly disguised as consumer level popular acculturated music and visual work which allow the biomechanical effect to be technologically enhanced so that it may reach into the precognitive state of experience as decision in order to reveal the meta and micro relations easily apparent to even the most casual participant."
