Decumentary: Jon Rose - Aural Map of Australia

Aural Map of Australia (12:58) Australian composer Jon Rose discovers the uniqueness of sound making across his homeland. A chainsaw orchestra, a singing dog, an aboriginal women's choir, a woman who makes music from DOT Matrix printers, and a man who screams into (and chews on) amplified glass are just some of the musical innovators Jon Rose met on both sides of the 40,000 kilometers of fences he turned into musical instruments throughout Australia. Rose then compiled this carnival of souls into a giant chamber orchestra, which performed at the 2005 Melbourne Festival, a sonic map of Australia that emerged from Rose's sonic map of the fences between them.

This is a video clip  from "The Reach Of Resonance," a feature documentary directed by Steve Elkins.
