For over 20 years, Linsey has created an international reputation as a performer, musician-in-residence, musical director, instrument maker/inventor, and composer.
A life-altering experience was an 8 month stay in Macedonia where he studied the Gaida (Macedonian bagpipes). When he returned to Australia he founded the Multicultural Music Center of WA, and later created several multi-cultural music ensembles including the National Cross Cultural Ensemble "Slivanje".
Linsey has recorded 21 albums. He is also very well known for his solo music theatre shows such as "The Art of Food", "Knocking on Kevin’s Door", "Playpen" and "Passing Wind" which have toured to Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, North America, Brazil and many festivals in Europe and here in New Zealand. This man is a Living Treasure!
As a musical instrument maker over the last 30 years, he has designed a number of funky wild wind instruments, as well as beautifully crafted woodwind instruments of Eastern Europe.
Live and Loopy is the culmination of this history in a funny and inspiring show made possible by the use of the looping technology where he creates live in front audiences, the most inspiring musical landscapes upon which he soars on the most unlikeliest of instruments made from the simplest of common things found in our worlds.
This is unforgettable talent and inspiration suitable for everyone of any age. Go to www.linseypollak.com for much more material.
