The Singing Politician takes the words right out of our Prime Ministers’ mouths – from Robert Menzies to Gough Whitlam, Malcolm Fraser to Paul Keating, Bob Hawke to Tony Abbott and celebrates these pivotal moments in Australian history. "The musical accompaniment is always based directly on a careful hearing of the speech recordings – the accompaniment is like a frame that primes the listener to notice the music in the speech. There is no pitch shifting or manipulation – this is simply how people speak. Gough Whitlam seems to favour B-flat major. Tony Abbott favours E-flat major. Julia Gillard seems to veer more towards B major” says Davidson.
“A fascinating and artistically absorbing musico-political event” Limelight Magazine
“It is simultaneously quite serious, quite moving and absolutely hilarious” James Morrison
