Music review: Three Cane Whale & Daniel Herskedal

You could describe the British trio’s music as “chamber-folk”, the Norwegian tuba virtuoso’s as “chamber-jazz”.

I am wary of hyphenated “chamber” musics; recordings so-described oft prove anaemic, twee, wannabe.

No such problem here:  two very different ensembles have each created something singular, beautiful, with spine.

Weird, wonderful: early Spring in southwest WA

Perth’s King’s Park – a short walk or free bus trip from the CBD – is bigger than New York’s Central Park.

It is also vastly richer in local flora.

Nearer to the Indian Ocean and just 8 kilometres from Perth’s GPO, the even bigger Bold Park has more than 300 local plant species…and (alas!) more than 200 introduced ones.

All photos taken today, Monday September 4, 2017 in Bold Park. Your further zooming/enlarging may prove rewarding.
