8th September 2014:
It has been a great winter! Here are some of the musical things I have been involved in.
- I am now a part of The Australian Silent Film Orchestra. We performed an amazing score for Buster Keaton's film The General: with and written by The Blue Grassy Knoll at The Melbourne Recital Centre.
- A short film that I composed the music for premiered at The Melbourne Film Festival. You Cut I Choose.
- I performed at Iwaki Auditorium a few weeks ago as part of the Melbourne Writers Festival. A show called The Radio Hour, produced by the amazing Jaye Kranz, for Radio National's 360 documentaries. You can hear part 1 right now.
22nd February 2014:
I am currently on an amazing residency at Boxohouse in Joshua Tree, CA. I am working on a collaborative video & sound project with Megan Evans titled A Stranger in the Desert. Next Saturday I will be presenting a work in progress of the film as well as performing some other songs and pieces, here at Boxohouse. Next Tuesday February 25th I will be performing a solo set as Sailor Days at Culver Centre for the Arts. It's free but you will need to get to California.
Also, I didn't win the APRA/AGSC award but I was very happy to be nominated. Apparently the film was shown last night at the NGV as part of White Night.
