Azariah Felton’s 'Tintinyungu' was given its world premiere performance. Its gently flowing, charm-laden measures give way to more assertive moments. I’d like to listen to it again. The composer points out that the title means ‘‘to challenge or compete with” and the piece shows this by pitting the players against one another “through different time signatures and rhythmic groupings”. It’s fascinating fare. - Neville Cohn, New Oz Arts Review
'This Is Our First Rodeo’ is exciting and remarkable, choreographed by Michelle Aitken, with music by Azariah Felton, and design by Eilish Campbell. With the dancers in black cowboy outfits, edged in red, we are welcomed into the rodeo – or could it be a Highland Gathering? The fiddle music was catchy, and one of the dances reminiscent of a Scottish ‘Strip the Willow’. Who are the stars of the rodeo, the cowboys or the beasts? – This routine made one think.' - Gordon the Optom, The Independent Theatre Assosciation
'In Azariah Felton’s 'Harm Them', the music oscillates between ferocity and a sense of eerie, threatening unease. Frequently, it sounds creepy, phantasmagoric, ominous.' - Neville Cohn, The West Australian
