April is a multi-media theater piece that fluidly merges a few discrete artistic forms: opera, musical theater, and film. I wrote it with Franky Rousseau over the course of almost four years. The text was adapted from a stage play by Samuel Bronowski. The piece is written for a small chamber ensemble, but it’s all pre-recorded (the only live element being the singers) and mixed with electronic sound design and perpetual video by Pier-Louis Dagenais Savard.
Test premiere was September 10th 2015. Will soon be released as a film.
