ABOUT THE PROJECT
“Nubian Soul meets Colonial Mind on an Island of Flowers in the Nile.”
In this surprising Opera, Pauline Oliveros and Ione create a passionate sonic journey through dimensions of time/space and cultures. Seeds of current cultural clashes in the world are revealed as Ione and Oliveros explore time, history, and the mysteries of life and death through sound, text, and visual imagery. After the unexpected passing of Pauline Oliveros at the end of 2016, the creative team committed to completing the project while honoring Oliveros’ extraordinary music and sound design.
