Firebird Forensics gave 30 music students from government school students the opportunity to dissect Stravinsky’s Firebird and expand and explore their own composition skills and ideas under the guidance of Paul Rissmann. At the conclusion of the project, the students presented their work in a public performance. Students explored thematic material, scales, modes, rhythms and structures from The Firebird and use them to create a new group composition.

What happens when the man-made enters the natural landscape? What will happen to these pristine environments?
