majora_A4vol

Majora is the only amplified singer in the opera due to the need to occasionally feed her voice into speakers after being transposed up an augmented fourth, in order to produce the effect experimented with in the demo. It therefore requires a special additional staff to indicate the degree of intensity for the controller of that effect.

Meanwhile, revisions are scattered everywhere, dealing with issues of all kinds, from orchestration details to score layout, through resolving placeholders and honing the libretto, as we painstakingly run through the entire thing page by page, system by system, bar by bar.
