A re- texturing for stereo of Aeschylus' Agamemnon in the translation by RICHMOND I.ATTIMORE with Music specially composed by CHRISTOS PITTAS Aftamcmnon tells the story of the triumphal return from Troy of the King of Argos, with the slave-girl Cassandra. and his murder in a tub of water by his wife Klvtemestra - avenging the sacrifice of her daughter Iphigenia, which Agamemnon had been forced to order before the fleet could sail for Troy ten years earlier. This seminal story nibbles at the fringes of human consciousness. In Ag it is presented, in radio terms, from inside out; it is broken down into fragments of sounds and words, in order to explore the tragic image of Man advancing towards inevitable death.

In his opening lecture, Dr Blakemore chronicles the development of man's ideas on the location and function of the mind. He argues that it was Descartes's view of brain and soul as being distinct entities that allowed men, even devout men. to study the workings of the brain without fear of treading in the footsteps of God.
