"Jane Aubourg - Ostinato"

Jane Aubourg is a classically trained violinist who studied at the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music and is now studying composition at the Sydney Conservatorium. She plays contemporary music on an electric violin and uses digital effects to create her music.
Jane has played a wide variety of music from all genres over the years but for this CD has taken what I would call a contemporary classical approach.
This is her first CD.
The musical influences range from Bach to Simon and Garfunkel. Jane explains on the cover that Ostinato means a continually repeated musical phrase or rhythm. Jane creates a link through nine tracks on this CD. You can pick up the repeated phrases and rhythms in each track.
I enjoyed listening to this CD. It is a pleasure to have on in the background as you go about your daily routine or to just sit and enjoy as I did with a gin and tonic one sunny afternoon. I also found it relaxing to listen to while driving in traffic. No road rage that day! It is difficult to single out individual tracks as the CD blends together so well but I did especially enjoy ‘Finding Frangipanis’, ‘Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme’ and ‘The Bach Divide’.
Jane has composed all but one of the tracks on the CD and performs all the music herself.
I enjoyed listening to this CD and can recommend it. It provides a new and exciting take on the violin.
