Oracle Hysterical's The Sea is an evening-length symphonic song-cycle inspired by the literary magazine, Lapham's Quarterly. It is commissioned by and performed with Grammy-nominated A Far Cry. Using Lapham's "The Sea" issue as eclectic libretto, Oracle Hysterical weaves music from texts by history's greatest seafarers, explores and aquatic fabulists, from Shakespeare to Homer, and from John Donne to the Book of Jonah. The work is performed with videography.
