I recently caught Australian violinist/sound artist Jon Rose at Red Room in Baltimore. He used a motion-sensitive rig to his bow to manipulate sounds on a laptop while he played along. It was a very intense set. Among many other endeavors, Rose has been working on the ongoing Fence Project where he ‘plays’ the wire fences scattered across his home country.
