A local musician and artist has just completed an interesting experiment by travelling through NSW and QLD for two months without touching money.
Mat Marsh, aka the ‘Celestial Serpent,’ says that for that entire time he bartered labour and his CDs as payment for food and shelter.
‘Food actually wasn’t that hard to come by,’ he said, ‘and I was lucky that there were many generous people who also gave me shelter.’
Mat performs with the group Wandering Eyes and also said he had a spot at this year’s Splendour event with Nicky Bomba.
The experience on the road with no cash was filmed, and he says a documentary will be released.
