About the Event

Karen Wimhurst in collaboration with MoDiP and the Arts Council of England presents Synthetica, a contemporary chamber opera.


soprano - Brittany Soriano

Elaine Close on trumpet and

DJ Ole Rudd

Vinyl crackles, a locked groove, plastic waves breaking upon the shore of a new continent ‘Synthetica’, rising from a sea of glass. It’s the dawn of the twentieth century and a new eco-material is appearing, promising a glorious democracy worldwide. During the 1930’s the scintillation of cellophane crystalises a modern era of Freudian advertising. By the end of the century, the horror of the Pacific Garbage Patch is the new continent manifested in our oceans.
