Based on The Passion of Saint Sebastian, this web-opera consisted of a competition on ArmchairInternet.com in which filmmakers created short Internet films (2 minutes or less) set to any part of the music. 39 films were entered from Albania, Brazil, Canada, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, US and the UK. A jury (a filmmaker, art critic and museum director) selected the winner and runners-up.
CD: Katherine Hanson (Sebastian) | Maria Mannisto (Dark Angel) | Greg Bagley (6 string fretted acoustic bass) | Garrett Fisher (Indian harmonium). Sound Engineer: Doug Haire. Recorded at Jack Straw Foundation (Seattle, WA).
