Tasmanian International Arts Festival

March 2015

Calls Across The Island (Dove Lake Boatshed, Henty Dunes, Lake St Clair Jetty, Teds Beach Campground)

Tasmanian International Arts FestivalTasmanian International Arts Festival

Take a journey into the natural wonderland of Tasmania and listen to the voices of some of the most imperilled creatures on our planet sing out across time.

Calls Across the Island is a series of free outdoor concerts taking place at twilight at eight iconic Tasmanian sites. The audience is immersed in the beauty of sunset, accompanied by Linsey Pollak’s live music. Pollak is an instrument maker and composer who challenges traditional ideas of music. He is a master of live looping, playing and recording in real time during his performance. Multiple layers of music, made from the sounds of various endangered or extinct species, create a delicate and emotive musical performance.

The sounds cry out from the past and ask the audience to reflect on their own place in Tasmania’s future.

Composed by Linsey Pollak.

Audience capacity for this event is limited so registration is essential.

Please register here or call 03 6210 5721.
