25 May 2014 – 29 May 2014

Venue: Various Venues
Presented by: Australian Chamber Orchestra

A visual and musical surge through the evolution of music, from 42,000BC to the music of today, featuring electronic music duo The Presets.


A kaleidoscopic surge through forty-two thousand years of music, Timeline traces the evolution of music, from the ancient Australian Aboriginal musical heritage of c.40,000 BC all the way up to the most recent Western music of today.

Bringing together a cappella vocalists, seven-time ARIA Award-winning music electronic duo The Presets and engrossing visual effects, Richard Tognetti directs a fascinating voyage that passes through the sparingly austere music of the 14th century to the voluptuous outpourings of the late Renaissance, accelerating into the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods before exploding into our modern age.
