*** Résumé en anglais seulement ***
For the first time, an album of the ZKM electronic series is to be released that uses state-of-the-art technical procedures for sound production as an integral part of the musical staging of an opera. »The Wigns of Daedalus » similarly uses technology to build the sound substance. Here, not only methods of sound production or editing, but also movements of sound in space are used as a means of dramaturgical articulation. The artful integration of the voice into the quasi-orchestral/concrete musical development is striking. From a mixture of noise and pitched sounds Maurizio Squillante developed a sound libretto which functions as an inner narrator and captures the audience from the very beginning until the final notes fade away.
