Files & Media
This is a new version, substantially revised and edited by guitarist-composer Marc Wolf - a re-visioning of the original 2017 micro-opera, reflecting a radically different portrait of its protagonist (antagonist?). As with the earlier version, it is a technically-demanding solo guitar work - embedded in an intense psycho-drama of disillusionment and alienation. The guitarist is frequently called-upon to speak (rhythmically or freely) and there is a brief passage of singing.
