Duo Faun is a dynamic Brisbane-based flute and harp duo. We provide a range of services from event performance to weddings to therapeutic aged care and hospital engagements. We are both professional classical musicians with years of performance training and experience, both of us holding degrees from established music institutions and also working as private teachers and freelancing orchestral musicians. Duo Faun is our way of connecting with audiences on a smaller and more intimate scale, through genres from classical to ambient and meditative to modern song covers and folk tunes. Our unique combination of harp and amplified/electronic flute and effects offers a luscious and healing ambient sound scape. The most important aspect of Duo Faun's work is tailoring each programme to suit our audience or client.
The Healing power of music
Duo Faun was formed in mid-2018 and we got straight to work, joining the Stairwell Project to provide live music in hospitals. We very quickly realised the importance of this work and had found a purpose here - we were in a place where the audience not only wanted to hear us, but needed to - it took the focus away from us as a performers (as an introvert myself, a welcome change!) and put intense importance on how we adapted to each space and how we affected each space and each audience. This quickly spiralled into more hospital work, not only at the RBWH but also at Prince Charles in the Palliative Unit and in aged care facilities. We've been honoured to present intimate bed-side performances for particular patients in both locations, as well as provide a welcome calming ambience in certain wards and public spaces. It means everything to know that both patients and staff are benefiting from not only our presence, but the presence and commitment of all our colleagues in the Project. Music is powerful stuff. We love this work, and it is a path we strive to continue on.
In addition to therapeutic sessions, we can play at any kind of public or private event. We even do yoga workshops! So if you have an idea for collaboration, let us know! Or if you've been looking for a small music group to take your next event or function to the next level, get in touch!
