Crucible Studio and Helsinki Skaala Opera collaborated to produce a multimedia opera performance on the life of Alan Turing (1912-1954), a heroic wartime code-breaker and pioneer of computer science. Turing Machine DVD is a live recording of this performance at Korjaamo, "the Helsinki Cultural Factory".
The Turing Enigma and the 3D scenography for Helsinki Skaala Opera's Turing Machine are realized by the Crucible Studio team as an experimental production for the EU Commission funded research project, SALERO.
The Turing Machine opera, composed by Eeppi Ursin and Visa-Pekka Mertanen, is comprised mainly of new electronic music and realtime sampling of old and new material. The libretto is based on the play "Turing" by Miko Jaakkola, which tells the strange life story of this exceptionally talented and complex person. The 3D visualization and digital scenography is by Merja Nieminen and the Crucible Studio team.
