Didgeridoo and orchestra: Sean O'Boyle's River Symphony and more
I really, genuinely, couldn't figure out what kind of music I wanted to listen to today, then I found this:
William Barton on the didgeridoo with the Australia Youth Orchestra. After a bit of poking around I'm pretty sure this piece is Concerto for Didgeridoo, composed by Australian Sean O'Boyle. He also did River Symphony which is if anything even more amazing. Or to put it another way, overwhelmingly brilliant.
Letting your work get uploaded to YouTube isn't a waste of time. I'm so in love with this, it's going on my Christmas list, even if it means I have to have a physical CD when I would much prefer an MP3.
There is more. Here are two of my favorite instruments together, didgeridoo and violoncello. I'm in such ecstasies, you'll have to excuse me from actually finding out what I'm listening to.
