Typing; the first scene, an operatic journal entry

Description

The opening scene is composed of the scientist’s typed journal entry which has been transformed into a musical instrument. The altered typing is accompanied by an antique toy piano and Berg-like vocal punctuations so that the entirety feels like a circuit bent atonal opera. I created the music withfound and created bird, insect and other jungle sounds against an amplified typewriter. What becomes clear is an encroaching madness and reluctance to leave the sheer terror of thousands of square miles of rapid life and death.
