UPCOMING: NEW WORK WITH ZEPHYR QUARTET:
I’m very excited to announce that I will be working with Zephyr Quartet this year and that they will premiere my new work for them later in the year.
Zephyr Quartet are Australia’s leading genre-defying explorers of dynamic cross-artform music-focused collaborations, an award winning string ensemble whose musicians compose, arrange and improvise. This unique skill set together with Zephyr’s open-minded approach allows them to skilfully traverse musical worlds and gives the quartet its own distinct voice.
A firm believer in the power of the string quartet as a medium to communicate and explore complex relationships between society and art, Zephyr has achieved an enviable reputation for artistic excellence, innovation and audience development as well as for being ‘arguably Australia’s most lateral thinking and inventive ensemble’ (Music Australia).
Stay tuned for concerts’ details.

I am particularly interested in collaborative projects that include artists from different disciplines and styles.
My long-standing collaboration with Setare S. Arashloo is currently focused on the Knock Mark Stitch project. This work showcases the stories of politically active people in Iran who were jailed in the 1980s. Their personal stories, especially of their daily interaction with objects and each other in jail, are abstracted in the image and sound of this work.
This work has been performed and exhibited in many formats.
The first live performance of this work was in New York, December 2016.
The latest version of this work is a handbell duo and video performance, premiered in Adelaide, July 2018.
