The contexts for her work are diverse, and she is particularly drawn to interdisciplinary collaboration, placing the voice in unusual positions to create new hybrid forms.

ensembles such as the Song Company, Ensemble Offspring and Australian Art Orchestra. Her work has been shown at venues including the Sydney Opera House, Art Gallery of NSW, Museum of Contemporary Art and the National Gallery of Australia.

‘Spirit Of The Inner Child’ is a night celebrating and recognizing the notion of childlike curiosity, innocence, and freedom of creative expression that ought to remain at one’s very core throughout our lives.
Seven creative experimental artists (David Parker, Del Stephen, Erik Kinsella, Heraclitus Akimbo, MKL32, Paul Newman and Jeff Sinibaldi) will mix it up for 1 night only, to perform 2 sets of spontaneous group explorations, upstairs in one of the most vital experimental music hubs in the city, Array Space.
