The ever inventive and rigorously playful composer, improvisor, virtuoso, curator, writer, sound artist, myth breaker Jon Rose continues to challenge the status quo of music and cultural practice around the globe. For Club Zho Jon will present P a l i m p o l i n from the Hyperstring project 4.
Dr. Hollis Taylor is a violinist, composer, and ornithologist specialising in the Australian pied butcherbird, with an abiding interest in lyrebirds and bowerbirds as well. Hollis will perform Super Tweeter, featuring her compositions based on the vocalisations of the pied butcherbird for violin and field recordings. Rather than attempting to 'improve' on the bird, these works celebrate the pied butcherbirds' sense of musicality and underline the many commonalities between them and humans.
Jim Denley is one of Australia’s foremost improvisers with a career spanning over three decades. An emphasis on spontaneity, site-specific work and collaboration has been central to his work. He sees no clear distinctions between his roles as instrumentalist, improviser and composer. He was recently awarded a Fellowship by the Australia Council for 2006 + 07 and is currently working towards a paradigm shift in the notion and perception of the saxophone; to establish it’s relevance to ancient and current traditions in Australian music, and to extend it's range with the addition of innovative electronics and miking.
