Perpetuum Mobile (Penguin Cafe Orchestra)


Perpetuum mobile Penguin Cafe Orchestra Sheet music is an arrangement written for String quartet. You can choose to buy score, parts or both score and parts together.

“Perpetuum Mobile” is a song by Penguin Cafe Orchestra’s from 1987 album Signs of Life. It has been used as theme music for several films, television and radio programmes, including the Australian stop motion animated film Mary and Max (2009) as the main theme, as well as the television adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale. It is even considered to be inspiration for the song “Fade into Darkness” by popular DJ artist Avicii. The song is unusual in that it was written with a 15/8 time signature. The melody appears to end and repeat one beat ahead of when it should, giving the piece the feel of a perpetual motion device.
