Probably the last CD offering from Jon Rose on ReR and so it's a mega issue with 3 hours 45 minutes of music and one hour twenty minutes of video; violins colliding with orchestras, freaks, choirs, barbed wire, a singing dingo, interactive violin bows, talk back radio, fire, chainsaws, bowed saws, brass band, suiciding flies, broadband feedback, aboriginal gum-leaf playing, department store pianists, high voltage sparks, slow rain, virtuoso whips, corrugated iron, the internet, musical ball, a lyre bird called George, mobile bicycle instruments, Tchaikovsky, and the proverbial kitchen sink.
