FRANCE IS BACON
MUSIC © Geoffrey Datson 2004
COMPOSER/PRODUCER Geoffrey Datson
Music from this album appears on the soundtrack on Amerigo Imondi's documentary WakingUp the Nation.
This predominantly instrumental album draws on influences from folk music, classical masters and ethnic sources, and combining this with his love of rock and the irreverence of punk, he constructs sweeping aural landscapes. france is bacon could be an instrumental journey into soundscapes of ancient battle grounds, medieval courts and druidic rituals, or perhaps the result of taking childhood games as the knight in shining armour a little too seriously. Regardless, Datson’s is an original voice among Australian composers.
