Product details

This Earthly Round was written as a musical response to climate change-deniers who choose to ignore scientific evidence to the contrary and continue to set policies that exacerbate environmental problems.

The music attempts to capture a sense of planet Earth's beauty, fragility and vulnerability. The 'round' slowly corrodes, becomes weaker and less hospitable, until the piece concludes with a bleak apocalyptic view of our possible future habitat.

This is our earthly round - a musical round;
Our joyous, brief moment of habitation;
On a fragile sphere known as Planet Earth, held in the balance.

The piece is dedicated to former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
