studied Composition in Perth and Brisbane with composers Brian Howard and Steven Cronin. Currently he is working towards PhD degree at the University of Melbourne, which also involved studies at the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien (Austria) under the mentorship of Chaya Czernowin.
His music is focused essentially on the search for new sound-structures and musical experiences through the exploration of the physicality of performance. His approach is directed at the quality of sound itself, through focusing on the player-instrument relationship as the primary source of the musical substance. For this reason, close collaboration with performers plays an important role in his work, and over the last several years he has developed a very productive relationship with the musicians of ELISION ensemble.
