Work Overview

This work is a setting of excerpts of Julia Gillard's famous "Misogyny" speech which alleged many instances of misogyny in Australian Parliament. The recorded speech is heard with choral accompaniment, in which the choir doubles and harmonises with the Prime Minister's speech using a very tonal and melodic style. It is a very approachable and engaging work, and has generated a significant buzz online.
