Sat 8 Oct BEMAC - Dva CD Launch

Forwarded on behalf of BEMAC Events [events@uq.net.au]...

We'd like to invite you to our cd launch at BEMAC
(Yungaba, 120 Main St, Kangaroo Point)
on Saturday 8th October at 7.30pm
admission will be $15 and $10

We are very excited about our third cd, as we feel it has captured the new direction that we have moved in with our duo "Dva".
The quality of sound (recorded by Stuart Koch) and the overall production is fantastic and we feel like proud parents.
So please come along and be part of the birth of "six four five eight six four seven eight".
In this new repertoire we concentrate a great deal on the beauty of certain sounds and feature instruments such as "Mrs Curly"
(a beautiful glass spiral contra bass clarinet) and gorgeous sounding rocks that Tunji brought over from Nigeria.
As a result of this new direction in our music we have generated quite a lot of interest from overseas Festivals and will already perform in Brazil later this year.
But first we want to launch the new album locally.

The album received the following review from John Shand (who is music writer for The Sydney Morning Herald and ABC Radio's Limelight magazine):

Even the dullest of us are fascinated by difference. Some get it from sci-fi films, fantasy novels or drugs, some from exotic food, wondrous places or meeting new people. What's at stake is a sense of having one's life expanded from a just room, a suburb or even a country into something approaching the infinite. It can be derided as escapism - sometimes true - but such instinctive curiosity is also what broadens minds, fires imaginations and breeds tolerance.
Tunji Beier and Linsey Pollak offer a path to the same destination via music. To enter their sonic world is to dare to leave the known behind, and to step back in time to what it was like when you first heard music as a child. Often you don't know how the sounds are made, but you are prepared to give yourself up to them and be rewarded by the wonder, the playfulness, the piercing melancholy and the flashes of wit. Then there is the implicit beauty of those sounds, and the seamless way that ancient instruments and exotic new inventions blend, as do acoustic instruments and digital technology. Behind those sounds, behind the vibrant composing and improvising, lie two rampant imaginations, harnessed to a fierce discipline of performance.
After two magical live CDs, this is the duo's first studio album, and each piece is will take you somewhere you - and often the musicians! - haven't been before: other worldly sounds that are always intensely, irrepressibly human.

Please come along and help us celebrate the launch of new cd and if you want to buy one we are offering them for a reduced price of $20 at the launch.

Hope to see you there - Linsey & Tunji
