Actress x Stockhausen Sin {x} II

Part of Stockhausen: Cosmic Prophet

The world premiere of an expansive new opera from the contemporary electronic musician and his artificial intelligence project, Young Paint.

The libretto was inspired by MPs debating the meaning of love during the Brexit no-confidence vote in December 2018. These debates were moderated by Actress at The House of Lords, with Young Paint generating music from the recordings.

This reimagining of Stockhausen's Welt-Parlament sees Actress join forces with Vanessa Benelli Mosell, a student of Stockhausen, on piano; The Netherlands Chamber Choir; and conductor Robert Ames of London Contemporary Orchestra. Young Paint AI performs electronics.

Stockhausen is one of the most visionary and controversial composers of the 20th century and widely regarded as the forefather of modern electronica.

Music by Darren J Cunningham, in collaboration with Robert Ames, co-principal conductor of the London Contemporary Orchestra, and Young Paint (AI). Co-commissioned by Southbank Centre and Holland Festival.
