Land of Lace


Presentation Title:

  • Land of Lace



  • ‘Land of Lace’ is part of an online opera entitled ‘The Imaginary Voyage’, which consists of several ‘islands’ of differing character. The opera is based on Alfred Jarry’s ‘Exploits and Opinions of Doctor Faustroll, pataphysician, in which Land of Lace is a homage to Aubrey Beardsley.
    ‘Land of Lace’ comprises animations by Jo Lawrence and music by Andrew Hugill, which are endlessly recombined by the computer. Each visit, while similar in style, is always different. The music sets ten lines of Jarry’s text to any one of ten vocal lines and accompaniments. The animations follow a similar process.
