    "McCarthy's writing and the atmosphere he creates has a sparseness, detachment and tension and is always touched with a dry wit. He presents both the absolute beauty and absolute ugliness of existence, often within the same sentence." - Kynan Robinson Solo in Red, a new work by acclaimed Melbourne composer, Kynan Robinson, is a musical exploration of the sparseness and fragility of Cormac McCarthy's writing. With the novels Blood Meridian, Suttree and The Border Trilogy as inspiration, Robinson's composition is textured and dynamically complex, a hauntingly beautiful work. A unique fusion of words, music and images, Solo in Red will be performed by renowned Melbourne sextet Collider. Part of the Melbourne Writers Festival. "Kynan Robinson's new piece Solo in Red is both astoundingly beautiful and original. Setting out to capture the atmospheres of a Cormac McCarthy novel it does all that and more." - Vierre Magazine 2011
