“Dangerous Song” (Linsey Pollak & Lizzie O’Keefe)

“Dangerous Song” (Linsey Pollak & Lizzie O’Keefe)

“Dangerous Song” (Linsey Pollak & Lizzie O’Keefe) - part of The Horizon Festival. Black Box Theatre, Nambour Sunday 11th September performance - 3pm - 4pm workshop 11am - 12pm admission - FREE Performance: “Dangerous Song”is a performance piece that combines the human voice with the sounds of endangered and extinct animals to create an intriguing and moving musical performance. This musical collaboration between Linsey Pollak and Lizzie O’Keefe is an exciting one, and although only begun in January 2015 it has developed very rapidly with a very strong musical rapport which has created a new musical language with structured, yet very free improvisation at it’s core. This musical journey takes us to a world of sound where the human and the animal combine. A sort of sonic morphing. This sonic world is mirrored by the visual superimposition of the natural world onto the human using projection. To do this Linsey & Lizzie have worked with Bonnie Jenkins, a photographer who draws inspiration from the combination of nature and the lens, exposing the wonder within. They also commissioned Jenny Pollak to create two of the videos. These moving images from Bonnie and Jenny are projected onto a semi transparent screen which surrounds the two performers. Linsey plays animal calls using a midi wind controller where breath, lip pressure and fingering control real animal call samples. He uses Live looping technology to instantaneously record layers of music as he plays. Lizzie joins him weaving her voice in and out of the musical landscape of animal sounds that Linsey provides. Workshop: This workshop will explore the technology used to create the “Dangerous Song”...
