GIVEAWAY: Hollis Taylor, Absolute Bird, double CD

In her book Is Birdsong Music? Outback Encounters with an Australian Songbird (read Chris Reid’s review), Hollis Taylor writes that “the capacity for vocal learning and copying that we share with song birds but with no other primates is deeply entwined with our essence, the essence of our music, and the essence of a bird’s song.”

Feel this affinity as you listen to birds and leading innovative Australian musicians come together on Taylor’s double CD set, Absolute Bird, which also includes excellent track notes and photographs.

Enjoy excerpts from Absolute Bird:

“Green Lake, Victoria” by Hollis Taylor for soprano recorder (Genevieve Lacey) and field recording.

“Owen Springs Reserve, 2014” by Hollis Taylor and Jon Rose for vibraphone (Claire Edwardes) and field recording.
