Composition Violin

Violinist/composer, zoömusicologist, and ornithologist Hollis Taylor is an ARC Future Fellow at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Previous research fellowships include the Institute for Advanced Study (Berlin), Museum of Natural History (Paris), University of Technology Sydney, and Macquarie University. Central to her compositional ethos is celebrating avian achievements rather than adding human “improvements.” Recent commissions include from Kronos Quartet, Ensemble Offspring, and Musica Viva.
