REVIEWS / AWARDS

Dynamic, provocative and cinematic, combining triumphant, delicate and emotive performance. – PBS FM

As gorgeous as any recent Philip Glass release. – 4ZZZ (Brisbane)

Rarely does one come across a group who can all write brilliantly and cross musical divides effortlessly. They are a refreshingly inventive and innovative team and it’s been a pleasure to work with them. – PAUL CASSIDY, BRODSKY QUARTET

This music is not alive, as that would suggest a unity of organism, but they are not separate.  There remains an underlying cohesion, an ecology of sound. – M/C Reviews

It is amazing how clear the events are, despite the lack of dialogue, as the music speaks its volume of emotions. (Share House) – BLUE CURTAINS BRISBANE

Qld State Award Winner for Excellence in Music Education – APRA AMCOS Art Music Awards 2015

(Ten Hands) … is an incredibly emotional experience. The experimental outlook ultimately serves to heighten the group’s dramatic flair for romance. – THE MUSIC

(Share House) Best Classical Album Nominee – ARIA Awards 2014

The real joy of the performance, though, is that, when asked to present to a series of festival audiences, Topology opted not to deliver a smooth set of standards but something jagged, unpredictable, challenging and exciting.  – Time Off 2010

A magnificent example in truly adventurous Australian music. – PBS FM
