Artist Biographies:

"My singing practice takes inspiration from Tuvan and Mongolian overtone singing, Inuit throat singing, sound poetry and an ongoing exploration of extra-normal vocal technique.

I also take influence from industrial musick, trance, and drone; insight meditation practice, urban/industrial shamanism and chaos magick; feminist, queer and trans praxis; and Discordianism.

As a researcher, I have interests in feminist, queer and trans politics, intersectionality and ethical engagements with postmodern culture(s), with a focus on writing against normative narratives. A critical engagement with the ethics of performance, cultural appropriation and privilege form the core of my praxis. I use the moniker Sage Pbbbt for vocal performance work and my name Sage J Harlow for writing.

I recently complete my PhD entitled 'Giving voice to the extra-normal self with the extra-normal voice: Improvised exploration through the realms of shamanic chaos magick, insight meditation and gender performance.' You can read it here if you like.

Sometimes I play the drums. Sometimes I write pieces of musick.

Pronouns: she/her.

I recognise the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of this country. I recognise the the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation as the traditional custodians of the land where I live (Perth, Western Australia)."

Djuna Lee: "You can find me playing double bass and bass guitar around town. From a classical upbringing, I went on to study jazz performance at WAAPA and now am more involved in the improvised and experimental scene of Perth. I enjoy creating and performing new works of music and love to collaborate with artists of other disciplines.

"Josten Myburgh: Perth-based musician, influenced (mostly) by early music, fluxus, footwork, hip-hop, Wandelweiser, free improvisation and folk music, and interested (broadly) in gentleness, silence, repetition, counterpoint, juxtaposition and nonsense.

I work for Tura New Music as a curator of their 'grassroots' concert and workshop programs, centred around experimental chamber music and free improvisation.

I am part of running the label Tone List, which represents some exploratory music activities in Perth through releasing records and organising concerts.

I've studied with Antoine Beuger, Lindsay Vickery (WAAPA), Stuart James (WAAPA), and also undertaken mentorships and emerging artist programs with Alessandro Bosetti, Perluigi Billone, James Ledger and Richard Barrett.

I've performed at Klangraum (Düsseldorf), AudioArt Festival (Krakow), Cable#8 (Nantes), 101 Scelsi/Cage Festival (Palermo), Tilde New Music & Sound Art (Melbourne) and the Totally Huge New Music Festival (Perth).​Music I've made is out on Edition Wandelweiser, Flaming Pines, Tone List, Ivory Tower Records.

I'm currently a PhD candidate at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, and also teach there as a sessional lecturer. My research surrounds the intersections of radical philosophies of hope and experimental music communities.

I play composed music with Jameson Feakes and with the ensemble Breaking Waves. I also play free improvisation, usually with Michael McNab (Tchake), Emilio Gordoa, Sage Pbbbt, and eszetts. My solo performances often incorporate a mixture of composed laptop electronics, improvisation, voice, objects and 'non-musical' elements."
