AURA’s “Metamorphosis” contemplates the concept of change through the music of Australian and American composers. One of Australia’s most accomplished composers, Brett Dean, explores the profound changes of an ageing father in “Old Kings in Exile,” while his younger colleague Cassie To transforms the bird songs of five endangered Australian species into conventional melodies in “Avialae.” New York City based composer Nico Muhly channels the music of Philip Glass through quotes and gradually evolving patterns in “Doublespeak,” and UH graduate student composer Robert J. Coe will present his vision of metamorphosis in a new work that AURA will premiere.
