Sikinnis III (2015) for piano dur. 5"

Written while a Bayside Artist in Residence, Bayside City Council

To be premiered by Danae Killian at St. Stephen's Church, Melbourne 29 September, 2017. 

Also performed by Danae Killian at Montsalvat, Melbourne for the Melbourne Composers League 12 November, 2017.

"These extremes are furthered by Sikinnis III (2015), composed by Evan Lawson, which exhibits dramatic registral shifts in a vigorous work exploring ideas of dance, joy, and sexuality. The dramatic pause Killian holds at the conclusion of this engrossing composition has the audience caught in the piano’s resonances."
