Project: Whispering Pines ∞
Whispering Pines ∞ is an opera project by artist Shana Moulton and composer Nick Hallett that incorporates performance, interactive video and music. Its creators plan to reshape Whispering Pines 10, a previous collaboration, for the internet in the format of a serial drama, in addition to developing new material for the stage that will expand the live animation techniques and musical vocabulary of its predecessor. Whispering Pines ∞ aspires to create a form of opera that exists across media—from the stage to the gallery to the computer screen.
