The Presets team up with Australian Chamber Orchestra in Wollongong

The Australian Chamber Orchestra joined with electro-pop duo The Presets on Monday night to present the world premiere of Timeline - Life Flashes Before Your Ears at Wollongong Town Hall.

The concert is described as a time-bending musical odyssey through 42,000 years of music, from Stone Age sounds to Vivaldi, Mozart and Bach, to Miles Davis, Bob Dylan and Nirvana, and then into a finale of contemporary music assembled by the ARIA Award-winning duo. 

Mercury photographer Christopher Chan went backstage before the show and captured images of Wollongong-raised ACO director and violinist Richard Tognetti and other orchestra musicians as they rehearsed ahead of the performance.
