Hyperdrive: First discussed by science fiction author Isaac Asimov in the 1940s, this term refers to a device which allows a vehicle in space to travel faster than the speed of light, and to describe said state of travel through space; i.e. the act of entering hyperspace. Full of energy, exciting rhythms, double stops, and 'jazz-like' articulations, this piece will surely propel students and audiences into hyperdrive.
