Event Details

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.
