Olga Neuwirth (born August 4, 1968 in Graz) is an Austrian composer. As a child at the age of seven, Neuwirth began lessons on trumpet. She later studied composition in Vienna at the Vienna Academy of Music and Performing Arts under Erich Urbanner, while studying at the Electroacoustic Institute. Her thesis was written on the music in Alain Resnais’ movie “L’amour a mort.” From 1985-86, she studied music and art at the Conservatory of Music in San Francisco with Elinor Armer. Later, from 1993-94 she studied with Tristan Murail and worked with IRCAM, yielding such works as “. …?risonanze!…” for Viola d’amore. Earlier in her career, Neuwirth had the chance to meet with Italian composer Luigi Nono, who shared similar radical political thoughts with her- she has claimed this to have had a heavy influence on her life. She has numerous chamber music works released on the Kairos label, and has collaborated with Elfriede Jelinek to create an opera of David Lynch’s film Lost Highway incorporating both live and pre-recorded audio and visual feeds, alongside other electronics. The world premiere took place in Graz in 2003, performed by the Klangforum Wien with the electronics realized at the IEM. The American premiere of the opera took place at Oberlin College in Oberlin, OH and featured further performances at Columbia University’s Miller Theater in New York City, produced by Oberlin Conservatory and The Oberlin Contemporary Music Ensemble. The surround recording released at Kairos is awarded with the Diapason d’Or. Neuwirth’s music is published exclusively by Boosey & Hawkes Music Publishing, http://www.boosey.com/neuwirth. « hide
