Feeling a bit camera shy


I like to collaborate with different musicians on a project by project basis for all sorts of musical challenges. Much of my work emerges from residencies that I have been fortunate to receive - including one at Cornell University's Ornithology Lab and Bio-acoustics Research Facility.

I have performed all around the world, including a brief appearance on 60 Minutes.

I have been composing and performing since 1999 where I sold out my first CD on tour. Recently my compositions were played at the Liquid Sound Festival in venues in Berlin, Bad Sulza and Dresden. This was a liquid sound festival so the audience was floating in a pool while the music was being played.

I was commissioned by one of Australia's largest folk festivals to compose and perform a segment for the closing ceremony for 40,000 people. I was also commissioned by our State Arts Minister to write and perform a piece for a national Ministerial Arts policy gathering. My music has also been used for anti-whaling campaigns in Japan.

I compose and perform using poetry as a compositional element. I am also an award winning multi-media artist, the author of 3 books and am currently on a residency in the National Science and Technology Museum in Taiwan, where I have been recording the sounds of their robot exhibition. The residency includes 3 months in India and a month in Malaysia. My famous initials (JFK) will soon be enhanced by a doctorate. I love a challenge.
