No Cure

Based on the structure of karaoke, NO CURE features four 80-year-old Germans, singing the lyrics of three The Cure -songs: Cold, One Hundred Years and Sinking. As the electronic score composed by Melbourne composer David Chisholm uses leitmotifs of Richard Wagner’s opera Gotterdammerung (Twilight of the Gods) to accompany the lyrics, the work drifts into a poetic and eerie comment on the transience of life and memory.
