Construction in space for four soloists, four ensemble groups, and live electronics

“The rain continued. It was a hard rain, a perpetual rain, a sweating and steaming rain; it was a mizzle, a downpour, a fountain, a whipping at the eyes, an undertow at the ankles; it was a rain to drown all rains and the memory of rains. It came by the pound and the ton, it hacked at the jungle and cut the trees like scissors and shaved the grass and tunneled the soil and molted the bushes. It shrank men’s hands into the hands of wrinkled apes; it rained a solid glassy rain, and it never stopped.” Ray Bradbury’s nightmarish science-fiction tale The Long Rain inspired Olga Neuwirth to create a major work of spatial music. Four orchestral groups encircle the audience, electronic sounds floating above their heads. The listeners are thus at the mercy of the acoustic impressions all around them – an almost claustrophobic situation. To set the mood, chamber music works by Rebecca Saunders and Pierre Boulez, to whom Neuwirth has dedicated Construction in space, will also be heard.
