The music of Erich Zann : an electronic opera suite
MetadataShow full item record
Inspired by, and adapted from, the riveting 1928 HP Lovecraft short story of the same name, The Music of Erich Zann is an obtuse and curious descent into madness and the unknown. Set in an eerily unknown city in early 20th century France, the stories unnamed protagonist takes up residence in an old apartment bereft of any tenants, save for one man, the mute old musician: Erich Zann. Through sleepless nights Zann plays the wildest, most otherworldly music, but under closer investigation we find there is something far more evil and unnatural hidden within those nightly refrains. Something so unnatural that it seems to distort reality itself.
