You close your eyes ….is it a saxophone, a clarinet, a flute, an oboe?
…..you open them and “WHOA!” …what you see are instruments made from paper, cellotape, a drinking straw, a rubber glove and some garden hose ........and the sound? .........they sound amazing!
Linsey makes music by live-looping self invented instruments such as a paper clarinet, a drinking straw oboe, a Cylisax, a rubber glove bagpipe and “Mr Curly” (a contra-bass clarinet made from hose sounding like a 70’s synth). Using these instruments he creates layers of music which will have audiences either spellbound or bopping in their seats.
"Linsey Pollak is one of Australia's most brilliant and under-rated composer/musicians. He is wildly innovative in the use of instruments but never lets his experimentation get in the way of the musicality of a work." ……The Courier Mail, Brisbane
“Pollak’s creativity shines…combining comedy and music making.” .......Hong Kong Standard
"His show is warmly funny, entertaining, educational and inspirational". ........Otago Daily Times,
