Rigwreck sets a text by poet Pierre Joris on the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Frequent vocal divisions into multiple parts, a wide range of dynamic expression, spoken lines, and powerful word-painting highlight the poem's emphasis on humanity's responsibility for the natural world and make this piece an exciting challenge for choirs.
