A few weeks ago, I was walking by Barnes and Noble at the mall, and saw a cool picture in the window. It was advertising the release of a new cd, called Aria 3: Metamorphosis. I was intrigued, so I went in to try it out.
20 seconds into the first song I knew I had to have this CD. For the precise amongst us, and aria is:
1 : AIR, MELODY, TUNE; specifically : an accompanied elaborate melody sung (as in an opera) by a single voice
2 : a striking solo performance (as in a movie)
Paul Schwartz, the composer of this album, took famous arias from classical operas and musicals and overlaid them with light techno. At various times it reminded me of The Blue Lady from The 5th Element, Mannheim Steamroller, and Antiloop.
All in all, an excellent cd, good for coding to. Any interested, I have samples.
