Forgotten Futures Presents: For The Benefit of All

Saturday 30th May
Online

With Forgotten Futures postponed until May 2021, we’ve decided to bring you the premiere of a special piece of work which was commissioned for the event, streamed on the day it should originally have been performed.

FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL

For the benefit of all is a music and story project written and performed by Tom Morris in collaboration with experimental cellist Jo Quail. It was Inspired by, and was originally intended to be performed within Kelly Richardson’s Mariner 9 panoramic exhibition.

Using digital synthesisers, cello and NASA’s audio recordings, For the Benefit of All aims to tell a story of humankind’s journey to Mars, spanning over 800 years. It is to be performed with visuals telling the story and timeline of events with each chapter jumping ahead 48 years, detailing the efforts to expand upon the excitement of Mariner 9’s initial images taken in the early 1970s, whilst reporting on a rapidly changing and unstable earth.
