Between 2018-2022 I completed a Doctor of Musical Arts (Composition) at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, The University of Sydney, under the supervision of Professor Liza Lim, and in 2018-19 I was one of four participants in the Composing Women program.
The degree entailed composing a Portfolio of Compositions and an accompanying Thesis. The project was titled: “What Does a Secret Sound Like? Exploring Communicative Agency as a Composer.” Five compositions were included in the Portfolio:
Secret (2019), for concert flute/alto flute, fixed backing track and gate effect
Commute (2018-20) a chamber opera for 3 singers, small ensemble and electronics
Street Sketches (2018) for 13 instruments, a companion work to
Streets (2019) for orchestra
Sonata: Ode (2019) for solo piano
Available recordings of the compositions from this portfolio are embedded below.
