NIDA acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we learn and tell stories, the Bidjigal people. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.

We also wish to acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across this country's sacred homelands, and in particular, students and other First Nations members of the NIDA community.

Mattison Tabone

Mattison has a strong passion for sound systems and sound design, with her main interests resonating with abstract and obscured realism. She enjoys challenging or warped perspectives and tries to emulate this in the works she produces.
Mattison takes inspiration from artists such as Dire Straits, Death Cab for Cutie and Pink Floyd, and enjoys creating sound designs with melodic atmosphere and experimental elements.
Prior to NIDA Mattison completed a VET Certificate III in Entertainment and Live Production, whilst undertaking year 11 and 12.
At NIDA, Mattison has created sound designs for productions including The Yellow Wallpaper and The Pineapple War.
Through 2018 secondment opportunities, Mattison toured through Melbourne with German experimental band Die Gräfin – self identified as ‘Train Track Opera’ – working as a mixer and sound technician.
Mattison hopes to create envelopepushing and challenging works in the future that provoke audience members to research and ask questions around topics explored in theatre and live events.
