'Dangerous Song - Blue' is a beautiful one hour film with an extraordinary live soundtrack. …..an exquisite combination of endangered animal calls with the human voice and stunning underwater cinematography. It’s a song for the planet.
Linsey Pollak plays a digital wind instrument controlling sounds of endangered species live-looping layers of music.
Lizzie O’Keefe joins him, weaving her voice in and out of the musical landscape of animal sounds.
This sonic world is mirrored by the projection of an underwater world onto the performers. Linsey and Lizzie perform inside a 3D scrim giving the impression that they are performing underwater.
“ ….the shockingly beautiful combination of Lizzie O’Keefe’s voice with Linsey Pollak’s incredible animal calls, and the explosively colourful underwater cinematography filmed by David Hannan. Ultimately it's hard to describe the beauty of this show. With wonder, we realise what a brilliant planet we belong to”.
Dangerous Song is sublime - "meditative", "magnificent" and "sacred" were words spoken by so many. After the show, after the applause had died down, people didn't move - a hushed reverence and feeling of transformation had taken over, and no one wanted to lose it. This is the most poignant, delicate and exceptionally beautiful work of art - a magical, empathetic, absorption into nature. Get there today if you can - this is genuinely world class. - Jacqueline Twigg
I'm not sure I have the words to describe the sublime music that emanates from the amazing partnership of Linsey Pollak and Lizzie O'Keefe. Their project transported us all to places around the globe. The moments of contemplative silence before the applause and the standing ovation at the end begins to tell you something of the marvels of the sound. - Tamsin Kerr (director of the Cooroora Institute)
Honestly that was one of the most unique and beautiful shows i have ever been too. It was a true privilege to see it live and up close. This should go global! - Sam Manger
One of the most compelling and beautiful shows I have seen/heard - Liz Page
A most exquisite soundscape journey delighting,educating and highly evocative. Human voice and animal voice merge and as one listens to this Dangerous Song one is taken to a place where endangerment could be changed, a place in our inner most being is touched through this vibration and we can feel the possibility of a new world where restoration is possible.A deeply moving experience-I had no idea that Australia has the largest number of endangered species,thank you for this profound offering. - Amanda Hogg
“I feel that this is one of the most powerfully emotive pieces of music (all the songs) I have ever heard. – Wayne Petty
“This event was not about the musician’s or singer’s technique, though both were masterful, or the audience as mere spectators. This experience was a joint exploration of our relationship with the natural world. The power of the merging of the human and animal cries had a visceral effect on all of us. Looking around at one time I could see that many of us had closed our eyes and moved into a meditative state to live for that moment totally present to the music. - Jude Pippen
