Retro Futurism Commences Friday 2 November 2012

The first episode of Retro Futurism will air on the Tabula Rasa slot Friday 2 November midnight to 2am on Melbourne's Triple R 102.7FM and broadcast on the net www.rrr.org.au.

Episode One - Pioneers will explore the roots of futurist music in early twentieth century composition. Following the collapse of tonality after the excesses of Wagnerian romanticism composers looked for new ways to express the experience of contemporary reality. Modernist artistic movements from Futurism to Dadaism fostered further developments, as did trailblazers from the New World, unhindered by tradition, along with the development of electronics.
