The New Music Theater

Eric Salzman

Oxford University Press

Technology has a long history in both music and theater, and music theater may be the most technological of all the arts. The arrival of new technologies has always provided a focus as well as themes for new work: the history of the relationship of opera and music theater on the one hand; film, video, and television on the other. Robert Ashley's video work, various uses of technology in music theater works, and digital interactivity are discussed. A final section discusses theater itself as a medium in the work of Heiner Goebbels.

Keywords:   technology, film, video, television, Robert Ashley, Heiner Goebbels
