Humanity has always sought to extend the boundaries of knowledge through innovation and discovery. Yet, just over a hundred years ago there was no space travel, bionic ear, cinema, telephone network… or atomic bomb. The innovation of the 20th century created opportunities and choices like never before. And it changed us.

Composer Sally Greenaway and Syzygy Ensemble take you on a provoking and entertaining journey through seven innovations that continue to shape humanity, the way we behave and the way we think.

Award winning Canberra-based composer-pianist Sally Greenaway (b. 1984) works in a multiplicity of styles and genres, from orchestral film and concert works to jazz ensemble, big band, chamber and vocal music.

Hailing from Canberra, her latest album Aubade & Nocturne (2015) was released to critical acclaim on the ABC Classics record label and was long-listed for the Australian Music Prize. The album also earned her a coveted Canberra Critics Circle Award.

In 2016 Greenaway was the inaugural recipient of the Merlyn Myer Fun & Melbourne Recital Centre Composing Women’s Commission, for which she wrote the 7 Great Inventions of the Modern Industrial. In that same year the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra premiered her new orchestral work Worlds within Worlds which was written as part of the Cybec 21st Century Australian Composers program.

In 2010 Greenaway graduated from the Royal College of Music, London, where she received the Lucy Anne Jones award. She has more than 60 works published, many of which are available through the Australian Music Centre.
