Walkabout - A Place for Visions
Alex Sipiagin, Bob Sheppard, Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra, Dave Lisik
Walkabout - A Place for Visions, was inspired by the film of the same name, directed by Nicholas Roeg, and the original novel, The Children, by James Vance Marshall. This project was made possible with funding from Victoria University of Wellington and the New Zealand School of Music.
The Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra is Australia's premiere jazz orchestra. In 2011, the group commissioned Dave Lisik's album-length composition, Walkabout - A Place for Visions, and recorded and premiered the work, with guest soloists Alex Sipiagin and Bob Sheppard, at the Sydney Conservatorium.
