Podcast No.1: Martin Friedel (14.2 Mb mpeg4; 59 minutes)
Scientist and composer: Martin studied physics and chemistry and worked as a university administrator before taking the plunge into life as a freelance composer. He won an Emmy in 1999 for his score for the TV documentary Dragons of Eden. Science plays an important role in his composing, notably in a unique series of cantatas performed at a number of memorable Melbourne concerts; one concerned with spaceflight was on a rooftop in the city on a beautiful evening.
