About the Event
Concert: La voix éthérée (2008/2021) for Tenor Saxophone, Trombone, Vibraphone and Pinao.
Asia is reshaping the modern world. Yet its rich artistic heritage and vibrant New Music scene is largely unknown in Australia. Forest Collective’s Ali Fyffe has curated a stunning program that brings into focus some of the region’s most powerful compositional voices, from Myanmar to Japan, China to Iran.
