Incredibly humbled to have been selected to receive an APRA Professional Development Award for 2022 alongside five other Kiwi songwriters and composers.
The grant will enable me to work with brilliant composer/sonic artist Garling Wu on a collaborative project bringing together our backgrounds in contemporary composition, songwriting and electroacoustic and exploring the interplay between these musical mediums. Throughout the project I’ll be learning from Garling and immersed in the world of electroacoustic composition, with the goal of incorporating this into my practice moving forward.
Feeling grateful and excited for what’s to come!
