Talos Dreams explores the line between born and made, human and non-human, in a musical work based on the real and imagined robots of ancient Greece. It is inspired in particular by the tale of Talos, the mythical robot that guarded Crete against invaders.
This virtual performance will feature a mix of live performance and music videos produced especially for this premiere. Talos Dreams is composed by Costas Dafnis and commissioned by the Greek Chamber Music Project with generous support from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music Faculty Grant. The event will conclude with a Q&A with the performers, with Professor Mario Telò presiding.
