Sun Songs and Cycles

From The Saturday Paper "New music ensemble Forest Collective’s concert Sun Songs & Cycles celebrates spring in all its fecundity, flamboyance and fickleness – an interpretation that seems apt, since Melbourne’s version this year has ranged from tropical thunderstorms to arctic winds. Last week’s program channelled the season not only through subject matter, but in presenting work that ranged teasingly across styles." (Article by Gail Priest)
