Livestream: The Electronic Lover

Programmed by Sean Carson

We present the online premiere of two episodes of The Electronic Lover, a new “audio opera” by Bay Area composer Lisa Mezzacappa and New York writer Beth Lisick. The cast and creators join us for a conversation after the premiere.

The Electronic Lover is a serial audio drama set in Internet chatrooms in the early 1980s, at the moment when we first invited computers into the most intimate aspects of our lives. The cast includes six lead vocalists, a choir, an ensemble of three instrumentalists, and a narrator. Previous episodes of the series are free to listen to on all podcast platforms.
