Colin Stetson @ Circus Ronaldo Tent

Sunday night was our last Sydney Festival event for 2014 and it was a great way to go out. Extraordinarily talented Canadian saxophonist Colin Stetson displayed a range of talents rarely seen. Anyone who knows me could attest to the fact that the saxophone is not an instrument I love. But Stetson plays the saxophone unlike anything I have ever seen. He uses circular breathing to create sounds that sometimes are unearthly. Frankly it's really hard to describe without you being there. Suffice to say that the music is entrancing and quite bewildering. He uses two saxophones, a bass and an alto. Both to great effect. Some sounds are hard and harsh, some are lilting and beautiful. All of it was unique.
