ROSE, JON: Great Fences of Australia
A limited edition release, in a presentation box with a mounted strip of barbed wire in each. This is a record of Jon's mammoth round- Australia tour with violinist Hollis Taylor, playing fences - the endless fences that divide the country. Hundred of resonating metres of them. This may read as a bit of conceptual nonsense, but these long wires are surely instruments, and the results are intensely musical, and unbelievably diverse. So many sounds and different ways of exiting these wires into sounds that laptop electronic performers probably wouldn't even dream about. And played with imagination and great musicality. A classic. Not to be missed. Only a few remaining.
