Austrian composer Olga Neuwirth’s new work Le Encantadas has been called a pure listening experience. Likewise, Simon McBurney’s The Encounter is a performance which uses sound to capture the imagination. But what constitutes a listening experience? How does a concert or music theatre performance trigger the imagination and create a physical experience? Artists and academics discuss these questions and Olga Neuwirth explains her working methods on this evening at the Festival centre.
