Dream Barge

2001

A barge that was part huge Brisbane Centenary of Federation River
Parade directed by Neil Cameron.

Linsey was Musical Director and
one of the barges was the Dream Barge that Linsey designed along
with Steve Weis.

Eight musicians worked in two teams of four
to play non stop music to half a million people as the flotilla of
barges was towed along the Brisbane river. The music was made using
samples of frogs, birds, boat horns and drum sounds that were
triggered by percussively playing twelve x  6 metre high bamboo
masts with long thin white sails. The whole barge was lit with ultra
violet light.
