Hopscotch Album

by Veronika Krausas, Marc Lowenstein, Andrew McIntosh, Andrew Norman, Ellen Reid, and David Rosenboom

Hopscotch was an original operatic experience that unfolded inside 24 cars and at sites around Los Angeles in 2015. Presented on a USB key so you can plug it into your car and create your own Hopscotch experience, this album offers a comprehensive view of Hopscotch. Featuring live and studio recordings of music by Veronika Krausas, Marc Lowenstein, Andrew McIntosh, Andrew Norman, Ellen Reid, and David Rosenboom, with additional music improvised by gnarwhallaby.

This recording — which alternates between live and studio recordings, and between brief excerpts and full scenes — offers a new way to experience Hopscotch: with a sense of totality and a "beginning-middle-end" dramaturgy that was never part of the original intention of the work. We hope this document offers listeners a sense of the range and scope of the work as a whole, as well as the individual contributions from six of Los Angeles’s most innovative composers.
