Record: a radio opera by Ludwig Abraham and Mocrep

Co-prosesperity Sphere: 3219 S. Morgan Street

Broadcast by Lumpen Radio

The mostly overlooked style of radio opera, in German "Funkoper", combines a live performance and a simultaneous production of a radio broadcast. In a collaboration between German composer Ludwig Abraham and the American ensemble Mocrep, the different potentials and possible modes of perception of the used media will be put to a test. Four musicians on stage are joined by a narrator or disc jockey that can be heard in the broadcast only.

This production is sponsored by the Goethe-Institut Chicago
