Atalanta (Acts of God) II (1982–2009) opera for man’s voice and woman’ voice, prerecorded orchestra and electronics
Three of the satellite songs from Ashley's opera Atalanta (Acts of God): “The Etchings”, “Empire” and “Au Pair”. Each one is inspired or revolving around one of the main characters of the opera, Max, Willard and Bud.
Atalanta (Acts of God) was written in the beginning of the 1980s, while Ashley was still in production for the television opera, Perfect Lives. The many hours of material were performed throughout the world in many different configurations, but this is the first time these songs have been available on CD.
