The Brain Opera Performance
From July 23 to August 3, 1996, you will be able to interact and perform
directly with the Brain Opera! During all of the Lincoln Center performances
(held between 1pm and 9pm, EST), you can access this site, and, if you are
Java-enabled, play our Web instrument. Your data from the Web
instrument will be sent to our Green Room servers at Lincoln Center, where it
will be processed and performed to the live audience.
Our final Web instrument is still under development, and will become active
at our premiere...in the meantime, we are providing an earlier version of it
below. Use it to practice and get proficient ahead of time:
You can access the program notes, below, for each of the three sections of the
Brain Opera, written for our Lincoln Center "Playbill" by Tod Machover. It is
divided up into three sections, corresponding to the three movements of the
piece. The text describes the musical styles and structures in the
performance, including corresponding audio examples for you to download
and listen to.
