Eve Klein


Vocal Womb, a sound installation and operatic performance work externalising the hidden, fleshy and deeply personal workings of the voice from inside a singer’s body. Audiences enter a reverberant dome where they manipulate real-time audio and video feeds taken from inside the body of an opera singer who is performing an intimate work composed for the dome.

Dylan Lardelli


The composition of a new work for Musikfabrik. This will be for three musicians, and will include performances in Germany, New Zealand, and Japan.

Kate Moore


The composition of Eximia (Bloodwood), a song cycle about the history, heritage, environment and women’s culture of the lower Hunter Valley using the personified metaphor of Eucalyptus trees native to the Hunter Valley dry sclerophyll forest. It is a 60-minute set of short compositions for two sopranos, violin, percussion, electronics and sound engineer designed for touring in Australia and the USA.

Eugene Ughetti


Polar Force, an immersive live performance combining custom built ice instruments with Antarctic field recordings, set within a chilled inflatable performance space. Polar Force is a phenomenological investigation of extreme wind and temperature through hyper-realistic art.
