"Kerrianne clearly displays a very mature artistic sensibility in her work, and in the depth of spirit she brings to it. She has an authentic and generous voice, and is a demonstrated leader -- not only in her community, but also in her art making" Kristy Edmunds (Artistic Director of the Melbourne International Arts Festival 2005 -- 07)
Linsey Pollak is a respected and internationally reknowned musician, instrument maker, composer, musical director and community music facilitator. He is a master of musical exploration and innovation. Linsey begins this concert with his latest one man show The Extinction Room, a sound piece creating music from the sounds of endangered & extinct animals. ..The calls of animals that no longer exist, .or may soon not exist. "These sounds cry out to us in perhaps a more immediate and emotive way than words can describe. They are a cry from the animals that share and have shared this planet with us." This is a solo performance using live looping. All the sounds used are animal calls and nothing has been pre-recorded, it's all being created as you listen.
"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."
