Getting Ready for Survival

Wolff, Ann

About the work

The piece sets a text by Michael Horovitz, from ‘A New Waste Land’. the human race is in a sorry state, and the musicians prepare themselves to urge us all, now with the chance of the Millennium, to save ourselves and the planet.

Technical notes

The baritone singer chants the words from the poem, with interventions from the instrumental ensemble, making use of ideas from tuning exercises as a form of ‘preparation’.
