Oppera Internettikka - Protection et Sécurité

Three artists with specific roles are performing a complex structure combined of sounds, voices, noises, internet audio files and sound-manipulating machines. The libretto for the opera is composed out of three sources -- Mutter Courage is using the texts written and proposed in advance by the online visitors of http://bram.org/peur/fear/ , Big Brother's only lyrics comes from a web search engine which he is manipulating in realtime, and the Secret Service Agent is singing the HTML source code (Hypertext Markup Language - the authoring software language used on the internet's world wide web for creating world wide web pages) and Java scripts (JavaScript is a script language - a system of programming codes that can be embedded into the HTML of a web page to add functionality) from specifically selected French secret service web sites.
