Live Looping
Unlimited numbers – open for all
If you have done a looping workshop with Linsey Pollak in previous years, you know how much fun looping can be and how much musical mayhem you can create with relatively little technical knowledge. Don’t miss the chance to learn a different approach to looping techniques by one of the absolute masters and pioneers of live looping – fun guaranteed, skill acquisition automatic (whether you have done it before or not)!

The Winging it Band (Arranging on the Fly)
Unlimited numbers – open for all
If you have ever seen this man perform, you know that nobody in the business has more, more varied and more rapidly exploding ideas. So what looks like last year’s workshop may well happen along the same lines, but will be completely and utterly different nonetheless. So again: Jamming. Winging it. Joining in. Whatever the style. Whatever your instrument and whatever your ability on it. Whatever happens, you won’t be bored and will make great musical strides at the same time!
 

Around the world and into your brain, vocal adventurer, multi-instrumentist and looping beatboxing songwriter Mal Webb (B.Ed. music, Melbourne Uni) sings his songs about all manner of stuff, using all sorts of vocal techniques, guitar, mbira, slide trumpet, trombone, chromatic harmonica and a loop recording pedal called Derek. It’s a lip to lung journey through the physics, physiology and phrivolity of all the sounds a face can make. Sideways yodelling, beatbox, harmonics, throat singing, uvular fluttering, advanced clapping. He’s like Bobby McFerrin, Aphex Twin and Cole Porter playing scrabble. Ebulliently eclectic. Nefariously varied. Family fun free from facile frippery. He has been a member of too many groups to list (but notably of Sock, Totally Gourdgeous and his many solo apparitions). He tours regularly in Austria, the UK, Germany, Ireland and North America.
