This concert celebrates the music of another species as performed by Hollis Taylor, a UTS Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Hollis is the rare musician with an enduring devotion to and passion for a single species of songbird. She spends hundreds of hours each year recording pied butcherbird songs. These recordings form the basis of detailed birdsong analysis, but she is also amassing a growing body of (re)compositions based on her transcriptions. She will perform a set based on the diverse and dynamic songs of the pied butcherbird for solo violin and field recordings (including various birds, insects, mammals, and frogs).
