Live at Art Farm - Vol 1 - Hollis Taylor & Solomon Frank
Join us for an interspecies musical experience at Art Farm Birchs Bay, featuring the extraordinary talents of Hollis Taylor and Solomon Frank.
Live At Art Farm Vol 1. This new series showcases performances spanning music, DJ sets, and experimental live arts that embrace the landscape. Hosted at Art Farm Birchs Bay, each event in the series is designed to offer a unique experience, presenting a mix of local and interstate artists' talents in a stunning natural setting. Volume 1 is the gateway to this ongoing series of creative exploration in our region. Your ticket to this event grants you access to performances from two renowned artists experimenting with animal musicality.
Hollis Taylor (NT): Absolute Bird. Hollis Taylor is a renowned violinist, composer, and zoömusicologist. Her project, "Absolute Bird," is a mesmerising blend of musicianship and science, where avian songs are not just imitated but celebrated for their inherent musicality. Taylor's unique approach, deeply rooted in her extensive research as a Research Fellow at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and beyond, brings a fresh perspective to birdsong. Experience this auditory journey into the sophisticated melodies of our avian friends, played in dialogue with the wild birds of Art Farm.
Solomon Frank (NSW): Concert For Dogs. Solomon Frank is a performance artist, improviser, composer, and educator who reimagines wind instruments through queer play and experimentation. His innovative use of the clarinet, merged with unconventional objects like vacuum cleaners and hoses, creates a soundscape that challenges and delights. In "Concert For Dogs," Frank explores the possibility of cross-species musical collaboration, tailoring his composition to the preferences of his intended audience: dogs. Friendly and supervised dogs on leads are welcome to attend!
