Hollis Taylor - Post Impressions
Violinists JON ROSE and HOLLIS TAYLOR travel 25,000 miles to explore and perform on the giant musical instruments covering the continent of Australia: fences. They meet, amongst others, a flying priest, an auctioneer, an aboriginal gum leaf virtuoso, Central Australia’s first piano, a singing dingo and various fence runners, and survive a plague of flies, a flea infestation, various deadly snakes, crocodiles, heatstroke, floods, storms and bush fires. This travelogue lets you trot safely alongside and includes a substantial and exhaustive DVD documenting 40 outback fence performances, colour photos, fence music and birdsong transcriptions. Remarkable.
