The centre point of this program features a newly commissioned work, Skin Deep, composed by ensemble cellist and composer Nikki Edgar. This new work uses a graphic score comprised of beautiful colours, shapes and lines. This incredible work, exploring the body and longevity of musical ideas and sounds promises to delve below the surface and open our minds to new ways of experiencing music through graphic score and unconventional sounds.
This performance also features new commissioned work Rosina by Chris Rechner, who we welcome back to the Forest Collective family with his musical composition, 7 Words by USA composer Julie Herndon, who’s electroacoustic work has been described as "striking" and "blended to inhabit a surprisingly expressive space" (San Francisco Classical Voice), and new work by Melbourne based composer-violinist Lily Tait.
We look forward to you joining us on this one of a kind journey through unconventional notation.
