Joseph Conrad's 1907 novel "The Secret Agent" has just about everything you'd ever want to put in an opera: intrigue, romance, violence, suspicion, guilt, murder, suicide. Atlanta composer Curtis Bryant has, in fact, turned the 1907 novel about a group of anarchists plotting to blow up the Greenwich Observatory into a full-length opera, and the work will have its world premiere this weekend, March 15-17, at Oglethorpe's Conant Center for the Performing Arts in a production by Atlanta's Capitol City Opera.
How would you describe the music in the work?We talk a lot in opera about things that we recognize, things that pop out to a listener, especially with composers like Wagner, who's very well-known for his leitmotifs, associating every character with a particular theme. As an opera singer, you're used to singing the work of dead composers, so it must be quite a change working with a living composer who's right there to answer any questions you have.This is actually my second time working with a living composer. Tenor Timothy Miller performs in the Capitol City Opera's world premiere production of Curtis Bryant's "The Secret Agent" at the Conant Center for Performing Arts at Oglethorpe University, March 15-17. We caught up with tenor Timothy Miller, who plays the anarchist Alexander Ossipon, so he could act as our super-secret undercover informant and tell us all about the new work. In this piece, composer Curtis Bryant has done a wonderful job of associating characters with themes, and all of these themes come back during the opera.
I performed in a work called "The Life and Times of Malcolm X" by Anthony Davis on the West Coast a few years ago. Do you have a favorite aria?I enjoy my aria because it's the only romantic moment in the show. You're preparing for the world premiere of "The Secret Agent" this weekend, and then next weekend you'll be helping to provide the music for the world premiere of "Hippodrome" by Atlanta dance company gloATL at the Goat Farm.
The main character, Verloc, played by baritone Wade Thomas, is charged with the task to blow up the tower. Verloc has his theme, the anarchists have their theme, Inspector Heat has a very distinct theme. Nobody expects the anarchist to be secretly searching for love, which is essentially what I'm doing. What exactly will you be doing in that show?We're singing the music of Arvo Part, who's known for his sacred repertoire and for coming up with his own way of looking at music, called tintinnabulation.
That's one of the wonderful things about it: Once you hear that music, you know who's coming. The thematic material that's associated with each character is something really distinct and really wonderful. He's a modern composer, but the almost chant-like style of composing takes you back to early church music. It's the part of Malcolm's life where he transitioned into "Detroit Red," as they called him. I'm trying to "culture the mob," while Yundt is all about going after those in power by blowing things up.
There are things that people will start to recognize, and things people will leave the show humming. To have the chance to work with someone who's still alive and still composing, it's invaluable. The first show I did with Lauri [Lauri Stallings, gloATL founder and artistic director] was at 54 Columns last summer. Yundt supplies the bomb, and then Verloc comes up with the plan to have his brother-in-law, Stevie, an autistic teenager played by countertenor Chase Davidson, deliver the bomb to the clock tower. For instance, there's a scene in which I walk into Verloc's home and I see him on the couch. It was exciting for us because we as singers don't often exercise that amount of creativity.

THESE VERY SAME ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES, WHO HAVE SWORN TO PROTECT AND SERVE, OUR COUNTRY, AND CITIZENS ,ARE BUT SOME, OF THE CORRUPT,GREEDY TRAITORS .ENGAGED IN THE TYRANNY AND TORTURE. What we do is scripted, but it's fantastic to be able to work with someone who has that much creative liberty. So now, Verloc has blown up his brother-in-law, and he has to keep this from his wife Winnie, and he's being followed by a detective, Inspector Heat, trying to piece together what happened at the clock tower and who Verloc's contact is at the embassy. Oh my God, she's killed him!" But I don't think we're going to have a blood pack, it just seemed too messy. To have the audience that close to you, right there involved in the show, it was something that I'm not used to at all, but it was very powerful for the audience and for us. I came up with the idea: Why doesn't Winnie just leave the compass she's stabbed Verloc with on stage near the couch and I'll trip over it and pick it up?

EUCACH.ORG PanelIn a 2-hour wide-ranging Panel with Alfred Lambremont Webre on the Transhumanist Agenda, Magnus Olsson, Dr. Henning Witte, and Melanie Vritschan, three experts from the European Coalition Against Covert Harassment, revealed recent technological advances in human robotization and nano implant technologies, and an acceleration of what Melanie Vritschan characterized as a a€?global enslavement programa€?.Shift from electromagnetic to scalar wavesThese technologies have now shifted from electromagnetic wave to scalar waves and use super quantum computers in the quantum cloud to control a€?pipesa€? a reference to the brains of humans that have been taken over via DNA, via implants that can be breathed can breach the blood-brain barrier and then controlled via scalar waved on a super-grid. Eventually, such 'subvocal speech' systems could be used in spacesuits, in noisy places like airport towers to capture air-traffic controller commands, or even in traditional voice-recognition programs to increase accuracy, according to NASA scientists."What is analyzed is silent, or sub auditory, speech, such as when a person silently reads or talks to himself," said Chuck Jorgensen, a scientist whose team is developing silent, subvocal speech recognition at NASA Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley. We numbered the columns and rows, and we could identify each letter with a pair of single-digit numbers," Jorgensen said. People in noisy conditions could use the system when privacy is needed, such as during telephone conversations on buses or trains, according to scientists."An expanded muscle-control system could help injured astronauts control machines. If an astronaut is suffering from muscle weakness due to a long stint in microgravity, the astronaut could send signals to software that would assist with landings on Mars or the Earth, for example," Jorgensen explained. These are processed to remove noise, and then we process them to see useful parts of the signals to show one word from another," Jorgensen said.After the signals are amplified, computer software 'reads' the signals to recognize each word and sound. Our Research and Development Division has been in contact with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the California Department of Corrections, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Massachusetts Department of Correction to run limited trials of the 2020 neural chip implant. We have established representatives of our interests in both management and institutional level positions within these departments. Federal regulations do not yet permit testing of implants on prisoners, but we have entered nto contractual agreements with privatized health care professionals and specified correctional personnel to do limited testing of our products. We need, however, to expand our testing to research how effective the 2020 neural chip implant performs in those identified as the most aggressive in our society.
In California, several prisoners were identified as members of the security threat group, EME, or Mexican Mafia. They were brought to the health services unit at Pelican Bay and tranquilized with advanced sedatives developed by our Cambridge,Massachussetts laboratories.
The results of implants on 8 prisoners yielded the following results: a€?Implants served as surveillance monitoring device for threat group activity. However, during that period substantial data was gathered by our research and development team which suggests that the implants exceed expected results.
One of the major concerns of Security and the R & D team was that the test subject would discover the chemial imbalance during the initial adjustment period and the test would have to be scurbbed.

However, due to advanced technological developments in the sedatives administered, the 48 hour adjustment period can be attributed t prescription medication given to the test subjects after the implant procedure. One of the concerns raised by R & D was the cause of the bleeding and how to eliminate that problem. Unexplained bleeding might cause the subject to inquire further about his "routine" visit to the infirmary or health care facility. Security officials now know several strategies employed by the EME that facilitate the transmission of illegal drugs and weapons into their correctional facilities. One intelligence officier remarked that while they cannot use the informaiton that have in a court of law that they now know who to watch and what outside "connections" they have. The prison at Soledad is now considering transferring three subjects to Vacaville wher we have ongoing implant reserach.
Our technicians have promised that they can do three 2020 neural chip implants in less than an hour. Soledad officials hope to collect information from the trio to bring a 14 month investigation into drug trafficking by correctional officers to a close. Essentially, the implants make the unsuspecting prisoner a walking-talking recorder of every event he comes into contact with.
There are only five intelligence officers and the Commisoner of Corrections who actually know the full scope of the implant testing.
In Massachusetts, the Department of Corrections has already entered into high level discussion about releasing certain offenders to the community with the 2020 neural chip implants.
Our people are not altogether against the idea, however, attorneys for Intelli-Connection have advised against implant technology outside strick control settings.
While we have a strong lobby in the Congress and various state legislatures favoring our product, we must proceed with the utmost caution on uncontrolled use of the 2020 neural chip.
If the chip were discovered in use not authorized by law and the procedure traced to us we could not endure for long the resulting publicity and liability payments. Massachusetts officials have developed an intelligence branch from their Fugitive Task Force Squad that would do limited test runs under tight controls with the pre-release subjects.
Correctons officials have dubbed these poetnetial test subjects "the insurance group." (the name derives from the concept that the 2020 implant insures compliance with the law and allows officials to detect misconduct or violations without question) A retired police detective from Charlestown, Massachusetts, now with the intelligence unit has asked us to consider using the 2020 neural chip on hard core felons suspected of bank and armored car robbery. He stated, "Charlestown would never be the same, we'd finally know what was happening before they knew what was happening." We will continue to explore community uses of the 2020 chip, but our company rep will be attached to all law enforcement operations with an extraction crrew that can be on-site in 2 hours from anywhere at anytime. We have an Intelli-Connection discussion group who is meeting with the Director of Security at Florence, Colorado's federal super maximum security unit. The initial discussions with the Director have been promising and we hope to have an R & D unit at this important facilitly within the next six months.
Napolitano insisted that the department was not planning on engaging in any form of ideological profiling. I will tell him face-to-face that we honor veterans at DHS and employ thousands across the department, up to and including the Deputy Secretary," Ms. Steve Buyer of Indiana, the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs, called it "inconceivable" that the Obama administration would categorize veterans as a potential threat.
