this is part one of a longer work by operarotas, a subdivision of the arbeitsgemeinschaft für zeitgemässen blickfang. on the prospect... combines classical singing with jazz winds and rock patterns. the work is based on themes played by a double string quartet. this foundation has been used for several other versions, ranging from the present which has a somewhat extrovert classical character to a more introvert poppy one and a quiet ambient version. the images of the animation are (re)processed architectural photos and stills.
