Bridget Chappell is an artist working with sound, based in Birraranga
They founded and coordinate Sound School, a Melbourne music school aimed
at upskilling and celebrating electronic musicians on the margins. The
School has become both a busy hub for emerging creatives and an inclusive
alternative to mainstream music education. Chappell's workshops create a
fun and healing space for people to lean in to electronic music. They
received the 2017 Music Victoria Best Experimental/Avante Garde Award for
their work with Sound School.
As Hextape, they are published on Australian labels Anterograde and TSV,
and European labels Vinylograph and Collective Tantrums. Hextape spans the
hardcore continuum (gabber, jungle, breakbeat, and techno) exploring the
magical realism of rave culture.
Eve Klein is an award-winning composer, mezzo soprano, sound artist and
academic. She designs large-scale, immersive art music experiences for
festivals. Klein’s music has been described as: “contemporary music at its
most relevant---simultaneously inward and outward focused in addressing the
challenge of its existence and its capacity to produce something great”
(Cyclic Defrost). Drawing together traditional and experimental classical
music, interactive performance art, and electronica, Klein pushes the
boundaries of genre to find new ways of immersing contemporary audiences in
art music forms. She holds a PhD in Music and Sound and is a Senior Lecturer
at the University of Queensland.
