You can't escape the tendrils of the industrial revolutions. Not only do you see its consequences everywhere you look, we're currently living in the Fourth industrial revolution - of autonomous machinery and AI. Ronan Apcar takes a look at the cultural phenomena and products of these industrial revolutions, presenting five solo piano works from Australian and American composers about commuters and factories, war and neoliberalism. Paired with and joined by Maria Zhdanovich and Jack Overall in Passing Electrical Storms, a collaborative improvised work originally created for Shaun Gladwell's extended reality artwork which simulates a medical "de-escalation of life." Leo ORNSTEIN Suicide in an Airplane Kate NEAL/Sal COOPER Commuter Variations Lynden BASSETT Why Wait?
