The Presets’ Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes are both classically trained.

Ignatius Jones, one time Jimmy and the Boys frontman and now a major events effects director, will create the visuals for the show.
“While we have enjoyed recognition in the contemporary music sector, our influences and our musical background have always been very broad, and have informed the music we create to this day,” Hamilton and Moyles said in a statement. “We were honoured to be asked to be contribute to Timeline – it’s a privilege to select so many meaningful works for the piece, and to work with the ACO.”
