Our lives have soundtracks; music has long served as a backdrop to the theater of humanity. Music is also something we can generally all agree on; we might listen to different types of music, but we generally all listen. Also, music often acts as a bridge between languages and cultures. Recording legend Stevie Wonder once remarked: “Music is a world within itself, it is a language we all understand.” So if we all can understand the language of music, what do we think it is saying? What are we singing along to?

Wells’s equally-breathless sea-bound finale to Tono-Bungay – we will be exploring the ‘spirit of speed’, as represented, reflected, challenged or wilfully ignored by British culture c.1895-1914.
