ED2012 Music Review: Moon (The Australian Voices)
Caught somewhere between contemporary choral music, physical theatre and art, ‘Moon’ is an original epic song of love. Characterisation comes not from soloists but from the group as a whole, with the storytelling aided by tasteful projected images. The piece contains staggeringly beautiful harmonies, cleverly executed a cappella techniques such as sound imitation and beat-boxing, and innovative forms of performance and singing which keep you on your toes. A little more audience engagement and facial expression might not have hurt, but this show is performed by a talented and slick group, and there is really nothing wrong with it at all, except that you may use up a lot of tissues if you get as emotional about such exquisite music, as I do.
