“Lost in Translation” is a new work by Madox Terrell & Orpheus Apprentice Conductor Kai Leung that radically confronts our changing world, and the role of technology in both enhancing and corrupting communication.

It grapples with the difference between ‘hearing’ and ‘listening’. Based on the concept of the ‘Broken Telephone’ game, “Lost in Translation” incorporates virtual choir, choral samples and electronics, embracing the relationship between medium and message.

Conceived and created during the COVID-19 pandemic, it premiered on March 13, 2021, a year into the global health crisis.
