Cat will be performing with Tina Havelock Stevens in a a new durational work, SunDownLow, at the High Tide Festival in Fremantle on November 11.

Was very excited to be invited to present at the Best Practice in Artistic Research at Sydney Conservatorium, on the possibilities and challenges of arts industry funding for artistic researchers in the Academy. I also presented about the limitations of Australian research paradigms for artistic researchers, at the Deans and Directors of Creative Arts at the Victorian College of the arts in Melbourne - it is discussed here. A couple of recent publications too. My keynote from Sound and Music Computing in 2016, 'Electronic Scores for Music: The Possibilities of Animated Notation' has been published in the Computer Music Journal here, and another one in Contemporary Music review entitled, 'Wording New Paths: Text Based Notation in new solo percussion works by Natasha Anderson, Erik Griswold and Vanessa Tomlinson', available here.
