Music | Sound Art | Drama. The work is a response to my experiences while working as Musical Director for a Theatre Project at John Northcott Place, the first high-rise public housing estate in Sydney, Australia.

Rise above the Living traces the history of Northcott told from the point of view of the building itself – the Building as a living organism, a witness – keeper of secrets and knowledge. The music is a mixture of spoken word, melodic electronic chamber music and musique concrete.

Musical Direction | Music | Sound Design. Multimedia theatre production Sticky Bricks, premiered at the 2006 Festival of Sydney by Big hArt inc.

Rise above the Living commissioned and produced for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
