The music of Australian composer Lachlan Skipworth has been described by Limelight magazine as featuring “bold, innovative textures, and compelling melody”. His individual and highly personal compositional language is coloured by three years spent in Japan, where his immersion in the study of the shakuhachi bamboo flute inevitably became a part of his muse. He has recently been awarded the coveted Paul Lowin prize for orchestral composition for his Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra (2014), which was premiered by the West Australian Symphony Orchestra with whom he is currently composer-in-residence.
I am a self-processed coffee nerd who works in the most fabulous little coffee shop. Alongside this I study French and anthropology, so I basically get to spend most of my life studying people which I feel incredibly lucky to do. I have always had a curious, creative nature and find joy in seeing the beauty in the ordinary; everyday experiences and even what is socially perceived as ‘ugly’.
