Hildegard and her radiant plainchant flowers into Leonin and Tallis... and then – another world: Bruckner gazes back from 19th-Century Vienna, trying to recreate ecstatic purity of the past using the ancient Greek modes.

In this distinctive work, Topology and The Australian Voices bring provocative text and exceptional musicianship together to create a musical narrative inspired by famous speeches delivered throughout Australian history. Composed by Topology’s masterminds Robert Davidson and John Babbage, alongside musical powerhouse Gordon Hamilton, the performance traverses pivotal moments that have shaped our nation. Unrepresentative Swill takes the words right out of our Prime Ministers’ mouths — from Menzies’ Declaration of War to Whitlam’s Well May We Say; Gillard’s Misogyny speech to Abbott’s A Stain on Our Souls — marrying them seamlessly to an overlay of stirring music and choral work.
