about

Operaism is a companion piece to David Kanaga's recently released PC/Mac dog opera game (available at oikospiel.com). The title Operaism is apt, as the two through-composed sidelong movements feel like a massive digital Opera, with donald duck sounding voices joining orchestral flourishes and humorous but also affecting operatic melodies. The piece seems large and impenetrable at first; never boring, rather a labyrinth of musical ideas that continuously unfold with every listen.

The following is a description of David's companion game:

"The Oikospielen Opera is developing an epic global-gaming festival called THE GEOSPIEL, scheduled for the year 2100. The opera's employees, organized by the Union of Animal Workers, are trying to integrate the game dev dogs of Koch Games into their group, but these loyal pups love their jobs and boss Donkey Koch too much! Will there be Unity and community, or will Multiplicity and individuality prevail? Money has awakened-- Pluto has captured the spirit of Orpheus, and Eurydice is lead composer in this operatic RE-FORM of the Adventure Game genre."
