ARTEMIS is a multi-platform opera that focuses on the relationship between the female body, metal, technology, and power. This opera is inspired by NASA’s program “Artemis”, a space mission that will bring the first woman to the Moon’s surface in 2024, 55 years after the first Moon landing. In the opera, ARTEMIS represents the promise of technological gender equality in the 21st century, as the first woman on the moon would be an act of empowerment, a symbolic validation of the spaces and disciplines in which women can thrive. In this lecture, Sasaki will share the concepts that inspire her creative process, and how she manifests them in music through the parameters of time and space. ARTEMIS involves the construction of interfaces such as the Speaker Dress No.3, a wearable sound sculpture composed of more than 150 speakers, amplifiers, sensors, and microphones.
