Excerpt of Review from by Vincent Plush, The Australian May 3
'Fairweather,' the evolving collaboration between poet Rodney Hall, video artist Glen Henderson and composer Erik Griswold...takes shape as a painter approaches a canvas, layer upon layer eventually yielding a glorious masterpiece. Featuring Satsuki Odamura on koto and the Kurilpa String Quartet with Hall's narration, 'Fairweather' is deceptively economic in delivery, and a harrowing and richly textured journey of perseverance and redemption through art’.
