I'm really stoked to be working on a new piece commissioned by the Camerata of St. John's to premiere on their tour of regional Queensland next month!

But first, their concertmaster/artistic director, Brendan Joyce, and I headed out to Charleville, to meet some of the locals, explore the area, do a few interviews for the local papers and radio, and gather some ideas to use in the new work.

Take a look at what we saw...

Last year (2015) I wrote a thesis! It was for my honours in my Bachelor of Music from the University of Queensland. HARMONIC PROGRESSION AND PITCH-CENTRICITY IN JOHN ADAMS PHRYGIAN GATES . . . I know, such a fun title. Anyway, somehow, it won an award! The Donald Tugby Musicology Prize and Scholarship, for the most outstanding research contribution to the field of musicology in 2015 at the university.

In the lead up to Paint in Red | 9, a collaboration between the musical and visual arts communities of Brisbane, I had the pleasure for chatting to one of the featured artists, Lucy Tyler, to talk about creating art, music, and what its live to create live reaction artworks.
