Telematic Tech Rehearsal

On Oct. 29, the Phillips is one of eight venues world-wide to simultaneously premiere Matthew Burtner and Scott Deal’s telematic opera Auksalaq, addressing global climate change in the Arctic regions. The audience is encouraged to download the Auksalaq app and bring along their own laptops, iPads, or smart phones to participate in this interactive event. Yesterday, the¬†Auksalaq¬†team visited the Phillips for a test run in the Music Room. This sneak preview just hints at the experimental, layered experience to come.
