What does it mean to package music? The Opus Project aims to answer this question through explorations of sound and form. As a collection, Opus re-imagines the concept of housing music within a physical object.
Schubert's Mass: Music Box Edition, the project's first installment, introduces a contemporary audience to iconic classical pieces. Each one of six handcrafted music boxes plays a newly arranged movement of Schubert's Mass in G Major. The melodies, themselves intangible and ever-changing, are likened to cloud formations in each iteration.
The Opus Project's ultimate goal is to inspire new perspectives, bridge the separation between old and new, and capture that which makes music timeless.
