The songs on this album are performed not only with the Silverchair guitars, drums and vocals, but with an entire orchestra. These lush and complex sounds have been transformed into print in Multiscore format which contains: --Vocal line with lyrics and chord symbols --Keyboard part which is a reduction of the orchestral themes and / or the main guitar lines and riffs --Additional staves underneath the keyboard part which transcribe all of the main guitar lines throughout each song notated in standard score --Guitar TAB notated below the standard guitar line including slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs etc. Diorama means a world within a world. It is a particularly apt name as this evocative work lifts you out of the everyday and carries you into a world of its own. According to Rolling Stone magazine in its four and a half star review, the album was "one of the boldest musical statements ever made by an Australian rock band". In an interview, Daniel Johns discussed the Diorama album saying that he 'had a real desire to impact people positively'. This publication is sure to do the same by providing scores which are faithful to the music and easy for musicians to use in a multitude of settings.
