Aiming to promote Mexican contemporary art through technology, printer manufacturer Epson is supporting the development of the first musical artificial satellite. It will be launched into space to transmit an opera created by a group of artists and engineers.
Ulises I, the first satellite to be developed in Mexico, will play conceptual opera The Game, created specifically for this purpose by a team of 11 composers. The satellite will orbit space while playing the opera for four months. The launch is scheduled for the end of the year in Tonga, the French Polynesian island.
"We are convinced that our country can generate innovative projects of international scope, as we have so much talent in all areas,” said Mauricio Doce, advertising and promotions manager at Epson Mexico.
