‘Dangerous Song – Blue’ combines the human voice with the sounds of endangered animals to create an intriguing and moving musical performance, and ultimately a new musical language.

Linsey Pollak plays a midi wind instrument where breath, lip pressure and fingering control the performance of animal call samples. He uses Live-looping technology to instantaneously record layers of music as he plays.

Lizzie O’Keefe joins him, weaving her voice in and out of the musical landscape of animal sounds. This collaboration takes us to a world of sound where the human and the animal combine into a sort of sonic morphing.

This sonic world is mirrored by the visual superimposition of the natural world onto the human performers using projection. To do this, Linsey and Lizzie perform from within a 3D scrim (semi- transparent screen) with the shape of a giant aquarium. Underwater moving images are then projected onto the aquarium shaped scrim giving the impression that the musicians are performing underwater.

Renowned and celebrated underwater cinematographer David Hannan (Ocean Ark Alliance) has provided the stunning moving images and they are truly magical.

‘Dangerous Song – Blue’ connects our hearts with the planet’s heart through the exquisite combination of endangered animal calls with the human voice and stunning underwater cinematography. The one hour performance EVOKES an emotional connection and response to the sometimes “hard to swallow” facts about the current Sixth Extinction Crisis and state of our oceans, inspiring understanding, love and hopefully action. There is no narrative, as we already know most of the story, even if we choose to ignore it and don’t know the ending. It’s a song for the planet – an inter-species choral work, and they’re singing for their lives! If their calls don’t affect you then nothing will.
