‘You and I can begin to live in a Limitless Tomorrow…’
Selfless Orchestra weave their song across the vast environments of Western Australia as a poem is read by members of our community who have protected, restored and fought for the ideals of a clean, sustainable future for us all.
Directed by West Australian artist and local musician Steven Alyian (Injured Ninja, Selfless Orchestra, Usurper of Modern Medicine, Doublethink Prism) – ‘A Limitless Tomorrow’ is centred around a poem that expresses our collective power to organise and take responsibility for our future and the safety of our environment.
In a project commissioned by Senator Jordon Steele-John as part of the ‘Art of a Green New Deal’ initiative and featuring music from Selfless Orchestra’s debut album coming out soon in 2020, ‘Great Barrier.’
