Sheet Music: Score
The 7 great inventions of the modern industrial age / music by Sally Greenaway ; inspired by J.S. Bach.
Embark upon a provoking and entertaining journey through 7 innovations that continue to shape humanity, the way we behave and the way we think.
Humanity has always sought to extend the boundaries of
knowledge through innovation and discovery.
Yet, just over a hundred years ago there was no space travel, bionic ear, cinema, telephone network…
Or atomic bomb.
The innovation of the 20th century created opportunities and
choices like never before.
And it changed us.
New music, old objects, an actor/ress and a chamber sextet combine in a dramatic work inspired by 20th century inventions that changed our lives forever.
Driven by celebrated Australian composer Sally Greenaway, featuring new music champions Syzygy Ensemble, a delightful and whimsical script by Paul Bissett and Catherine Prosser brought to life through a local actor (cast for each show). Accompanied by stunning set and lighting design with over 100 historic 20th C. items long forgotten or since taken for granted.
