"Oppera Internettikka - Protection et Sécurité" explores the poetics of a contemporary sound form -- opera as a sound event for the audience in the form of a live internet audio broadcast. In that way it combines the notion of the world wide web communication protocols and classical artspace -- an opera house. Opera is a very strictly coded form of art with a lot of passion, and internet is a lonely place of solitude and intimate communication which is becoming more and more fragile, dangerous and suspicious.

Three artists with specific roles are performing a complex structure combined of sounds, voices, noises, internet audio files and sound-manipulating machines.

(54 minutes)

The libretto for the opera is composed out of three sources -- Mutter Courage is using the texts about fear written and proposed in advance by the online visitors, Big Brother's only lyrics comes from a web search engine which he is manipulating in realtime, and the Secret Service Agent is singing the HTML source code and Java scripts from specifically selected French secret service web sites.

Co-produced by bram.org (France), Intima Virtual Base (Slovenia), Association Panoplie (France), 2006. Executive producer: Elisabeth Klimoff (Panoplie Artistic director).
