Song of Extinction at Luminato

June 22, 2016, 12:00 AM EDT

Song of Extinction is the world premiere of a fully immersive visual and sonic experience exploring the calamitous impact humans are inflicting on the planet and its creatures. Featuring stunning large-scale projections and a tightly enmeshed score for chamber orchestra, chamber choir, live electronics and youth chorus, Song of Extinction will interweave breathtaking moving images with live surround sound for a uniquely massive, multimedia event. The 50-minute work is a collaboration between composer Rose Bolton and filmmaker Marc de Guerre, with an original libretto by Order of Canada-appointed poet Don McKay.
