Proteus is the score to director John Greyson’s feature film of the same name. This complex musical narrative colours a storyline which is set in early 18th century colonized South Africa.

Mixing indigenous Khoisan instrumentation with period European stylings, via string quartet, Proteus features performances by Capetown traditional music icon Dizu Piaaitjes, Eric Chenaux (guitar), Sandy Baron (violin), Orly Bitov (violincello), and viola players Johann Lotter and Pamela Attariwala. The recording’s closing credits track is “The Devil’s Mollies,” which features lyrics by the director and vocals/ guitar by The Hidden Cameras’ Joel Gibb.

Music by Don Pyle and Andrew Zealley.
