7 Music Essays, Opera and the Power of Words
|The Feminine Musique: Multimedia||and Women Today|
I recently published several articles on music technology, music education, and Halloween film scores.
The written word has the means to express ideas that are only felt in music. Combined they can create an incredible powerful force. Maybe that is why I felt compelled to write Libertaria: The Virtual Opera. Opera is the quintessential dramatic form combining music and words. Not only does the audience feel the strains of music ripping at their soul, the words provide a new level that invades their mental space as they absorb sight and sound, creating the nearly perfect art form.
