Linsey makes music by live looping instruments of his own making such as the saxillo, Mr Curly, Rubber Glove bagpipes and the carrot clarinet. Using these instruments as well as voice, a bubble wrap drum, jawharps and a balloon, he cunningly creates layers of music so you can enjoy the process of composition as well as the product of performance. 

Watch and listen as he uses electronic wizardry neatly combined with "do it yourself" ingenuity to create the rich mellow sound of a watering can clarinet quartet, or voice-generated rhythm tracks together with a dose of seventies style funk with "Mr Curly" (a contra-bass clarinet made from plastic garden hose). He even turns a carrot into a beautiful sounding clarinet as you watch.
