NEW OPERA HERO - ABOUT
New Opera Hero composes, performs, directs and animates cross disciplinary concerts in different genres, styles and artforms. A playground without rules to try out ideas that are too leftfield for his official work, composing scores for performances and theatres like Hong Kong City Hall Theatre or the Young Vic in London and designing visual stage shows at international Opera Houses in Tokyo, Hamburg and London as well as for shows and World Tours of bands like the Pet Shop Boys.
New Opera Hero : "My work is about the live experience and that includes all elements on stage, not just the music."
His first classical/electronic opera at the Royal Opera in Liege, Belgium included acrobats in a huge animation set whilst his electro/rock project 'Eat,Work,Sleep' featured virtual dancers in a 3D holographic concert installation, won 2 MAMA Awards and was performed in major venues like Lowry Theatre Manchester, Kinetica Art Fair London, Mariott Cairo or Fusion festival, Germany. After some years touring Europe in the form of an alternative electronic pop trio he focused on electronic music production which won him an Award at the Sound on Sound Remix Awards and started some ongoing collaborations that will appear here soon.
