Favorite Acid Opera Track: Habanera

In 2002, I conceived and created Acid Opera, a CD of electronic based re-conceptualizatons and interpretations of arias and Art Songs.

Acid Opera ranks among the very finest work produced by Thinkmusic.

Habanera, from Bizets’s Carmen, is among the most famous of all operatic arias. It is also a superb lyric on the subject of Love. Here it is set in its original key with lyrics both sung and spoken in both French and English; the electro-tango setting retains the spirit of the original with a whole new spin.

Patricia O’Callaghan – vocal, Tony Kosinec – engineer. Asher Ettinger – arrangement, orchestration, programming.
