Löpez - Hyper-ballad of the Björk stalker

“Love. It’s not a magical thing. It’s an attachment. That’s what I have. Everybody worships something. In my case it’s her, an imperfect, fleshly creature just like me…”

“…How can you kill somebody you love?”

Late in 2018 I completed my first opera Löpez, based on the 20-hour video diary of Björk stalker Ricardo Lopez. The work is orchestrated for one tenor voice small ensemble, electronics and multiple video screens and is 85 minutes in length.

I am currently developing the multiple video screen design and pitching the work to potential partners and festivals.
