My debut EP Geburtstag is out today through Corella Records!
This digital release is the recording of the four works that I commissioned in 2019 to celebrate my Helge Grawert violin's tenth birthday. It features:
Chris Perren : Escapement for violin and mechanical metronome (ft. Jodie Rottle)
Connor D'Netto : actually untitled (sonata no. 2 for solo violin)
Kezia Yap : conversation in the mountain for violin and electronics
MJ O'Neill : Heroes (Movements I & II) for looping violin and tape
A huge thank you to:

The video premiere of "Escapement" is now live at CutCommon!
I spoke to their editor Steph about the piece, how it came about, and the upcoming EP.
Read the interview and watch the full video of Jodie Rottle and I performing Chris Perren's "Escapement", beautifully captured by Tangible Media, here.
.My debut single is now available!
"Escapement" is a duet for violin and metronome by my good friend and frequent collaborator Chris Perren. It's a playful piece that takes a common practice tool and nudges it into the spotlight as an instrument, and it was a delight to be able to perform and record it with the wonderful Jodie Rottle.
It's one of four pieces that I commissioned in 2019 as part of my project "Geburstag" to celebrate ten years of making music with my Helge Grawert violin. The full EP comes out on June 10!
You can listen and purchase the single here on Bandcamp, as well as preorder the "Geburtstag" EP.
You can also stream it on Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music.
I recently wrote a short reflection on the theme of visibility/invisibility for Griffith Asia Insights in response to the All A Part Symposium in celebration of the 10th Asia Pacific Triennial (APT10) at QAGOMA.
In it, I reflected on a personal experience of feeling invisible, and some of the broader implications of being visible or invisible within institutions or to society at large.
You can read it here - I'd love to know if you've had similar experiences or thoughts!
I'm delighted to announce that I'll be releasing my debut EP "Geburtstag" through Corella Recordings next month!
It will feature the four works for violin by Chris Perren, Connor D'Netto, Kezia Yap and MJ O'Neill that I commissioned in 2019 as part of my project "Geburtstag", in celebration of ten years of making music together with my Helge Grawert instrument.
Corella Recordings is the University of Queensland School of Music's new record label, and I'm delighted for my EP to be their first release.
We'll be releasing the recording of Chris Perren's "Escapement", a duet for violin and metronome, as a single on May 27!
