Oppera Internettikka - Protection et Sécurité explores the poetics of a contemporary sound form -- opera as a sound event for the audience in the form of a live internet audio broadcast. In that way it combines the notion of the world wide web communication protocols and classical artspace -- an opera house. Opera is a very strictly coded form of art with a lot of passion, and internet is a lonely place of solitude and intimate communication which is becoming more and more fragile, dangerous and suspicious.

Three artists with specific roles are performing a complex structure combined of sounds, voices, noises, internet audio files and sound-manipulating machines.

Time-line (54 minutes):

The libretto for the opera is composed out of three sources -- Mutter Courage is using the texts written and proposed in advance by the online visitors, Big Brother's only lyrics comes from a web search engine which he is manipulating in realtime, and the Secret Service Agent is singing the HTML source code (Hypertext Markup Language - the authoring software language used on the internet's world wide web for creating world wide web pages) and Java scripts (JavaScript is a script language - a system of programming codes that can be embedded into the HTML of a web page to add functionality) from specifically selected French secret service web sites.

Co-produced by bram.org (France), Intima Virtual Base (Slovenia), Association Panoplie (France), 2006. Executive producer: Elisabeth Klimoff (Panoplie Artistic director).
