Key Collaborations

fluttering hearts //

thinking machines

Sparking life and movement, or suffusing inertia, technology increasingly works upon us as we work with it. These friction points will be explored by songs by Addison from the past and the future. Ballads about artificial intelligence and baroque hymns for counter-tenor will come together to answer questions about how to cope with love and loss in a world where we are coerced into watching screens saturated with melancholy.  

Orchestrations by Evan Lawson, Alex Turley and William Elm.

Premiered by Forest Collective at Abbotsford Convent.

Nico

Contemporary music outfit Forest Collective and cabaret artist Danielle Asciak bring to the fringe stage music by Warhol’s muse, model and musician Nico (and The Velvet Underground). Led by founder, composer and conductor Evan Lawson, this ensemble will reconceptualise traditional instruments, voice, and intermedia with an avant-garde, punk rock sound to evoke Nico’s enigmatic song writing. 

Radical and raw, this is Nico’s life defined by songs they never played on the radio.

Orchestrations by Evan Lawson, Alex Turley and William Elm.

Premiered by Forest Collective at Melbourne Fringe Festival, 2018.
