Dear List,

Although "Lost Highway", a contemporary opera by composer Olga Neuwirth,
had it's world premiere in 2003, i want to point your attention to the
UK premiere tonight and it's following six shows at the Young Vic Theatre in
London during the next days.
The piece itself is an impressive mixture of onstage acting, orchestral
music, surround sound, audio samples and live-processed signals. The last being
entirely done in Pd of course.
Having a strong tradition of working with Olga Neuwirth, the IEM in Graz
took it's ambisonic approach to the road, installing almost 30
loudspeakers in the venue. All Pd processing currently runs on a linux
machine and is being operated following the orchestral score and
stageplay. The show's sound design was done by Markus Noisternig, all Pd
programming by Thomas Musil.
As this is a fairly large project i would take the opportunity to
thank the pd comunity for their work and support.
