Cat is back working at WAAPA so has been busy there working with new students. However a few things this and last month.
A new percussion duo work for the Sound Collectors was premiered on 11 Feb in Melbourne at New Music Beauty Queen. Read a review here. An excerpt of the score was featured on the poster too. The work will also be performed in Perth at PICA in July as part of the Scale Variable Chamber Music Series.
A new work for harp, Tension Lines, will be premiered on Friday April 10, at the MOANA gallery, as part of the opening of Kate McMillan's new exhibition Anxious Objects.

Cat will be facilitating at the Sound Check Symposium in Melbourne on Friday 10 April and gave a talk at a forum on April 1 at John Curtin Gallery in association with the show by Ragnar Kjartansson.
