Album review: Jon Rose, Rosin (ReR)
As this four-disc retrospective shows, Australian violinist Jon Rose has done more than any musician to revolutionise the approach to his instrument, with technical developments and radical performance strategies.
"Digger Music" is a duet for violin and mechanical excavator; and "Sphere" uses an interactive electronic ball to determine the organisation of various keyboards, multiple violins, choral chants and whiplashes. But it's his Fence Works for which Rose is best known, using the endless outback fences of Australia like enormous sub-bass cellos: the more portable "Garage Fence" included here sounds variously like the swarming of hornets, the screeching of train wheels, and the keening of angels. Remarkable stuff.
