About Alice

Alice is a sound artist and producer with creative work encompassing composition, installations, and live performance of both written and improvised music. She is interested in acoustic ecology and bioacoustics and her work focusses on relationships with the environment. Her music bounces around the borders of experimental sound art and electronic dance music with heavy influences from the 20th Century avant-garde and 1980s synth pop.

After completing an Honours Degree Bachelor of Music in classical flute performance at Monash University, Alice launched Tilde New Music and Sound Art Inc. with colleague Vincent Giles, delivering five festivals and three summer academies focussed on new and experimental music in Melbourne.

Alice teaches at the Australian Institute of Music (AIM) as an Academic Lecturer in music composition and production. She is an advocate for diversity and inclusion in tertiary music education, arguing for the support of diverse styles of music and diverse methods of creative expression within the academy. After sustaining a brain injury in a road cycling accident in 2019 she has focused on disability advocacy and accessibility within tertiary music education. She now works as a Diversity Advisor at AIM alongside her teaching commitments.
