Super excited - A1 pianist Zubin Kanga is en route to Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, the biggest such festival in the UK, to play a new version of my piece Dark Twin among works by Ben Carey and Patrick Nunn. Enjoy England's incredible train system and get along.

Opening tonight at Artspace in Sydney. I'm one of 10 finalists in the Arts NSW Visual Arts Fellowship (Emerging) exhibition. I am presenting two works - Vibrant Matter and White Noise. Come along from 6-8pm.
Nice mention of my work in the latest UN Magazine, reviewing Polyphonic Social:
"... the exhibition coincides with the larger theoretical shift away from sounds-in-themselves to sound's sociality and relational aspects - a shift generated by thinkers and artists such as Seth Kim-Cohen, Brandon LaBelle and Julian Day, as well as being the implicit mantra in Liquid Architecture's recent oeuvre."
My music features in a great new initiative. Soundfly is an online series of courses in music production, composing and performing. Cheap as chips and you can preview for free.
For some reason, most Google images of composing make pen nibs or feathers your weapon of choice.
Special focus on finalists in the Arts NSW Visual Arts Fellowship (Emerging) in this month's Art Monthly Australasia, including yours truly alongside Tim Bruniges, Frances Barrett and more.
ABC Classic FM has released a podcast of pianist Zubin Kanga's epic performances of Dark Twin at the Art Gallery of West Australia. Have a listen to my titular piece alongside works by Daniel Blinkhorn, Ben Carey and Cat Hope. Oh and here's a picture of cyborg Zubin with sadface.
My work Moving Collected Ambience (created with Luke Jaaniste as part of Super Critical Mass) is being re-staged next week at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. It involves dozens of vocalists who use the space as a score to trigger a subtle emergent choreography. MCA collected the work and are presenting it within their new collection show Today Tomorrow Yesterday and within the conference The Forever Now.
Wednesday 31st August (730pm) and Saturday 3rd September (2pm)

You must watch this video by stunning New York artist Sara Morawetz. It charts her attempt to create and outlay a 1:1 map of Westspace gallery in Melbourne, based on mind-bending musings by Umberto Eco. It also features some pretty devastating voicework by an unnamed male speaker.
Thrilled to be part of an upcoming show at Artspace in Sydney. The Arts NSW Visual Arts Fellowship (emerging) will open on 8th of November. Showing alongside top peers including Frances Barrett, Tim Bruniges, James Nguyen and Angela Tiatia.
