TURN OF THE MARK
μῆνιν ἄειδε θεὰ ...
A original, operawave crime-fiction setting spanning the distant mythologized past and the verismo, avant-garde modern era of an operatic world where sound reigns supreme. Since time immemorial, certain bards have learned to harness a strange infrasonic talent. In modernity, select artists begin professional training at a young age, attempting to develop the bardic gift - and often owned as living art for a hefty price of patronage. Centered in the fictional city of Virtival, this project explores historicity, anthropology, art, and autonomy through the experiences of a charismatic private investigator, a bard determined to seize his freedom, and their dealings with an ensemble cast of opera singers, criminals, scientists, sewer-dwelling motorcycle gangs, malevolent bureaucrats, and assorted supernumeraries. Page under construction.
