CURRENT STUDIO ARTISTS
Alice Springs-based songwriter/producer Dave Crowe performs and produces music under the name Resin Moon, as well as producing music and sound for many Northern Territory musicians and arts projects.
He has written music for the U.S feature film Grounded, and international T.V shows Akward and Made in Chelsea. He has also penned major TV ad campaigns for Mitsubishi, Australia Post, Medibank, Olive Grove (U.S) and Tourism NT and is currently works with Gaga Music Publishing.
As an artist, he has twice won the NT Song of the Year (2013, 2016), an Australian Independent Music Award, and placed 3rd in the International Songwriting Competition.
Emma employs brightly coloured fabrics as well as bodily shaped mirrors and cameras to create elaborate sets for performances. Her work explores material misbehavior, as these sets are installed by their own material needs, as the bodily shaped mirror’s viewpoint often becomes the dictator for where the entire apparatus can function spatially. Collard also explores how colour can facilitate a situation where a specific humour, action, shape or moment can be set up and articulated.
Jonny Rowden is a British-born performing artist who relocated to Alice Springs in 2015. His work has spanned theatre, performance art, and performance installation, often using humour, food and soundscapes to create delicate, interactive, and sometimes intimate performance experiences.
Recently, Jonny’s concerns have shifted towards ‘whiteness’ as a racial construct. He has begun to scrutinise and unpick the social, cultural and technological structures that prop up white privilege in the Western cultures. Using writing and semi-improvised performance he reflects the positions, privileges and responsibilities he occupies within this matrix, which will remain an ongoing concern within his artistic practice.
