The Edge Of Forever
The Edge of Forever is a chamber opera in five scenes, with 38 minutes of music scored for a single tenor singer, a chorus of four female voices, and an eclectic ensemble comprised of two conch shell trumpets, woodwinds, strings, various standard and non-traditional percussion, and features eight sine tone oscillators played through a mixing board. The musical influences for The Edge of Forever include the avant-garde New Music tradition, ancient music and tuning systems, sound healing practices of the Californian New Age movement, and Spiritual/Free jazz from the 1960s and 1970s. The release is the second collaboration between composer Lewis Pesacov and librettist Elizabeth Cline. The recording will be in a limited edition series of 500 vinyl records. Included is a booklet insert with synopsis, libretto, photo documentation, and text by the librettist, composer and The Industry's Artistic Director Yuval Sharon. Distribution has moved from ADA to Cobraside.
