The Luminato Festival, in partnership with Music in the Barns, presented the world premiere of Song of Extinction, a visual and sonic exploration of the Anthropocene, the rapidly accelerating calamity that Homo sapiens have unleashed on the planet. Created for the monumental 400,000 sq. ft. Hearn Generating Station, the 50 minute electro-acoustic cantata pushes the boundaries of art and science interweaving archival footage, panoramic images and a tightly enmeshed score for chamber orchestra, chamber choir, youth choir and live electronics.
