(radiophonic /

text based / 

improvised)

My experimental practice focusses on radiophonic and text-based composition, collaborative installation, and improvised vocal practice. I've been heavily involved in the Perth experimental scene since 2017, and completed my Honours study in 2020, specialising in feminist musicology and experimental radio art practice.

 

My most recent work indulges in the mundanity of life in the 'burbs of Boorloo (Perth). The studio piece Amazing blissful moment (fearful receiver) was recently commissioned by Tura New Music as part of @The Roots program, and subsequently released independently (listen here)

I have written a number of ensemble works which have been performed by ensembles across Australia, most notably by Ensemble Offspring and Decibel ensemble. In 2019 I was commissioned to write a new work for Decibel's concert Revolution, presented by Tura New Music, (the 'Difficult Commission' is supported by Bryce Moore, and the Difficult Listening program on Perth radio station RTRFM 92.1). In 2017 my 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.
