Last weekend I got to visit Baltimore for a recording session with Rhymes With Opera. We tracked all the instrumental parts for Ruby Fulton’s massive new work Adams Run, set amidst wild weather in a dystopic future world. Two television show hosts vie for the most viewed program in America. Despite their idealogical differences, existential weather woman Julie Shore and environmentalist evangelist the Reverend Billy Noble fall in love. Television producer Dana Daring tells their story from a news perspective as a series of flashbacks. With multiple screens telling stories within stories, post-Minimalist sounds of wild weather, the voices of eccentric characters, and strains of forbidden love, this video opera explores very real problems of climate change, screen obsession, and overblown media in unexpected ways.
