Song of the Ambassadors
October 25, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
What goes on in the mind of Lincoln Center’s Chief Artistic Officer Shanta Thake during a concert? See for yourself at Song of the Ambassadors, a groundbreaking opera in development that unites technological and scientific innovation with sound healing. Conceived by polymath K Allado-McDowell and written with the AI program GPT-3, with music composed and performed by Derrick Skye and a chamber ensemble of singers and instrumentalists, Song of the Ambassadors reimagines opera as a participatory ritual. AI-generated images designed by digital artist Refik Anadol are infused with brainwave data from Thake to create combined visualizations on stage. The result is a powerful experience that illuminates the pathways by which music and ritual feeds the spirit.
