Lastly i wanted to get a post up about this project by Italian turntablist Økapi.
Dropping on the frankly brilliant Illegal Art label it's a project that is incredibly hard to get across in words, so bear with me.
Økapi & Aldo Kapi have taken the Fixed opera concept by Bruno Munari and reworked 40 operas themselves but using digital techniques rather than the traditional ensemble concept originally used.
I'm not going to lie to you, it's a sometimes hard listen but the sheer scale of the project is frankly f*cking scary and I struggle to think of anyone other than Christian Marclay who could have even attempted something like this.The pay off is worth it though as within this gargantuan effort there are some incredible bits of music and ingenious use of classical compositions.
It's been getting some, justifiably good press, not least by Wired magazine and is a truly great project that I think in years to come will be looked on in the same way as projects such as Plunderphonics.
There isn't anyway I can directly link you to the music so I'm afraid you'll have to settle for jumping to Opera Riparata page on Illegal Art's website where you can listen to it all. You should also check out the interview/article in Wired
