Thoughts on musical experiences, my own works, and who knows what else.
Today the Australian news podcast Old Boys Club has reached the No. 1 slot for Australian News podcasts on iTunes. While all the credit goes to the fantastic team of editors, and brilliant presenters Justine and Matilda...I'm going to piggyback on this success all the way. Very proud and grateful to have been involved in this project!
Just a few days ago I had the immense pleasure of putting together a sound story/talk/performance for Sydney-based theatre company, Living Room Theatre. My piece centred around the violence of sound design, and was titled "I Make What I Don't Want to Hear." The piece focused on my own anxieties and how this comes through in the sound materials and manipulations I use.
I plan to create a recorded version of the performance, coming soon to Soundcloud!
A few weeks back I had the pleasure of composing the theme tune for new Australian podcast Old Boys Club, a much-needed breath of fresh air in the realm of political commentary. Written by young women for young women, Old Boys Club is fun, energetic and downright hilarious to listen to.
The brief was "fun, electronic pop." A lot of the elements were recorded in the back of my wardrobe with a hand-held mic, and putting this together felt fairly effortless as the vision of Justine, Matilda and Alex was so clear. The first two episodes of the podcast are out now and you can listen to them here, and the one-minute theme tune is also available for listening on my Soundcloud!
