WOMEN IN MUSIC FESTIVAL – PLEXUS: PRISM ★★★★ 

                               

"Responding to the mobiles of American artist Alexander Calder, Shifting by Melissa Douglas created a disembodied, weightless sense of freedom through upward melodic spirals anchored by piano."

Music

"From the delicate beginnings of floating single notes, the music developed with a free rise and fall of sharply contoured patterns until an expressive chordal piano solo developed. We felt a virtual wind blow through the mobiles as the instruments took up wider tonal gyrations with more expansive colour and energy.”
