“Live and Loopy”
|A solo show performed 2011 – 2016
Linsey makes music by live-looping instruments of his own making such as “Mr Curly” (a contra-bass clarinet made from garden hose), the Rubber Glove bagpipe, a watering can clarinet and the Saxillo (a wooden sax made from an Olive tree he planted). He also makes a clarinet out of a carrot live on stage (the video went viral with over 58 million views).
Using these instruments as well as voice, a balloon, jawharps and a Looping machine he cunningly creates layers of music at the same time demystifying the whole process of music making.
Watch and listen as he “uses electronic wizardry neatly combined with DIY ingenuity to play an array of unexpectedly surprising single reed instruments along with voice-generated rhythm tracks blasting out a dose of groovy seventies style funk with “Mr Curly” that has audiences bopping in their seats.”
