Annika Moses (radiophonic / text based / improvised)

Annika Moses's experimental practice focusses on radiophonic and text-based composition, collaborative installation, and improvised vocal practice. Currently studying an Honours in Composition and Music Technology at the WA Academy of Performing Arts, Moses has been heavily involved in the Perth experimental scene since 2016. She received the Robert Juniper Award for the Arts to fund the collaborative interdisciplinary installation five point one and a piece of four by two at the Mundaring Arts Centre in 2017 with Shannon Lyons, and has had her work presented in experimental festivals The Totally Huge New Music Festival (2017) and Audible Edge Festival (2018 & 2019). Engaging in a personal archiving practice that investigates the politics of field recording and using found audio, Moses’s work displays a care and delicacy while showing a curious attention to minute intricacies in sound.

In regards to Annika's acoustic ensemble music, she has most notably worked with Ensemble Offspring to have her piece Wheels of a Spoke workshopped and performed, and Decibel ensemble, commissioned to write a new work for their concert Revolution, presented by Tura New Music, (the 'Difficult Commission' is supported by Difficult Listening on Perth radio station RTRFM 92.1). In 2017 her solo work VKW 96FM (duet for voice and radio) was presented as part of the Breaking Out emerging composers concert in The Totally Huge New Music Festival, and featured in a New Waves podcast, presented by ABC Classic FM.
