HOCKEY (OR WATCHING THE DAISIES GROW)
"Matthew has captured a Turing dream"
- Andrew Hodges, Author (Alan Turing: The Enigma)
Inspired by the life, legacy, humanity and struggle of Alan Turing, Hockey (or watching the daisies grow) opens with the words of Mathematician and Cryptologist Dr Shaun Wylie who worked alongside Turing at Bletchley Park, and moves into Max Richter’s haunting reworking of Vivaldi’s Summer concerto.
