Biography

Kate Neal is an artist with over 20 years experience as a composer, arranger, teacher, artistic director and collaborator. Since 2006 (with the premiere of the scored ballet, Concave City) she has been incorporating extra-musical parameters within the notation of a musical score, such as physical gesture, design, light and choreography. The result is a musical language that extends the existing techniques of the performing musician, and creates a synthesis of experience for audiences where music is to be seen and heard: the performative aspect of the work is as important as the aural. In many cases, these works provide a variety of unprecedented collisions of unlikely visual and musical cues.
In 2015/16 Neal is the recipient of an Australia Council for the Arts Fellowship, allowing her to compose six substantial new works over two years. In 2013 Neal returned from the US to take a one-year position as Composer in Residence for the Four Winds Festival. From 2009-2013 Neal was a Graduate Fellow at Princeton University in the USA, and from 2007-2000 she was based in the UK.
Neal holds a BMus (VCA, Melbourne); BMus/MMus (RC, The Hague); PGDip (non-western music, SC, Amsterdam); PGDip (RNCM, Manchester) and is a current PhD Graduate Fellow at Princeton University. Neal makes work across a variety of genres and art-forms and has a long-term collaboration with animator Sal Cooper.
