Formatted Abstract/Summary
What is human nature? It’s a question that won’t go away. It fuels ongoing arguments amongst some of our best minds. Composer Robert Davidson makes music from these arguments, taking his melody from the spoken voices of scientists, writers and philosophers - people like Margaret Mead, ANU’s Derek Freeman, Susan Blackmore, Steven Pinker, Richard Dawkins, Richard Lewontin, Stephen J. Gould, David Williamson, Peter Singer and Ian McEwan. Combining ABC Archive-supplied voice recordings with his performances on double bass, piano, guitar, voice and clarinet, Davidson explores, in humorous and multi-levelled ways, the heated conflicts and deep questions arising around who we are.
