Thoughts on musical experiences, my own works, and who knows what else.
The 2021 HiberNATION Festival is coming to a close, and I am delighted to be part of the grand finale. SoundSERVER is a multi-artist installation happening exclusively in Minecraft on Saturday 2nd October, running from 12pm - 8pm. I wrote a work for a room called “The Lonely Plain” - and despite a few glitches with the looping, I’m happy to be experimenting with this new sounding space! I plan to release the loop as a standalone piece on my Bandcamp very soon.
Some exciting news! I have been accepted to study a PhD at Massey University in Wellington, New Zealand in 2022. I will be continuing my research into the accessibility of modern electroacoustic music culture, and how we can change our aesthetic goals to be more inclusive and perhaps more resourceful. I am so excited to begin this new journey and ever hopeful that the borders will open up soon enough for me to begin next March.
Sadly, this also means I will be leaving behind the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, which has nurtured my skills and encouraged my creativity for almost a decade. I do hope that I can return to this vibrant community some time in future and share what I learn over the Tasman.
