Her music moves between the world of concert music to performing as an electronic artist of experimental noise and techno. Her music is represented by the Australian Music Centre and she is the current recipient of the 2020 Belle S. Gitelman Award, 2019 Howard Hanson Large Ensemble Prize and is an Alfred Kitchin scholar.
