The Temporal Character of Catherine Schieve’s Slide Opera

Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 63)


Experimental notation languages, experience in performance theater and use of the video camera, and explorations in electronic processing come together in the creation and performance of Slide Opera by experimental composer and multimedia artist Catherine Schieve. Slide Opera is an openly structured work that continually adapts to new circumstances and experiences. Its present form consists of 136 slides. These may be increased to 200 or 2,000. Different performance sites may suggest or require alterations in equipment and manner of projection. That is part of the intended character of the work.
