is a new collaboration between Melbourne based musician and multimedia artist Emah Fox, writer Leanne Hall and Ballarat based multimedia artist and producer Amy Tsilemanis. Between the three their work has been seen, heard and published nationally and internationally.
Emah’s live performance ‘demonstrates distilled vocal prowess, set against a backdrop of languid and ethereal soundscapes’(Faster Louder), and her albums have been described as ‘darkly beautiful, organic, sincere, haunting’ (Zebra) ‘world-class electronica’ (Revolver). As a sound artist/composer Emah’s practice ranges from multimedia sculpture, video art and soundscape installation work, to sound design, composition and workshops with choreographers, filmmakers and other artists.
Leanne is the author of two novels for young adults, the Text Prize-winning This Is Shyness and its sequel Queen of the Night. Leanne has had shorter pieces published in Meanjin, Age, Best Australian Stories and the anthology Growing Up Asian In Australia. Her work plays with the borders of reality and fantasy.
Amy is an artist working across the various fields of theatre, radio, installation, writing, multimedia, research and curation. She has produced programs and events for Ballarat Arts Alive and Ballarat Heritage Weekend and content for Tinderbox Radio, ABC Open, All the Best, 4ZZZ, and the Central Highlands Arts Atlas.
