Gaia Theory by Jonathan Dove

BBC Proms 2014

World Premiere at BBC Proms, 28 July 2014

Composer Jonathan Dove, who came on Cape Farewell's expedition to West-Greenland in 2008, is launching a new work named Gaia Theory for a symphony orchestra. This new work has been commissioned, and will have its world premiere during the BBC Proms 2014. Inspired by the work of James Lovelock and continuing Dove's concern to address environmental issues in his music, Gaia Theory takes as its starting point Lovelock’s idea that the Earth behaves as a self-regulating organism, and his description of all the inter-related processes maintaining the earth in the optimum conditions for life as a kind of dance.
