Sound designer: the stars descend – fitzgerald

Azariah Felton

Azariah Felton is a composer and sound designer whose work ranges from instrumental concert pieces to sound art and installations, and includes collaborations with dance, film, and theatre. He draws from wide-ranging influences: popular styles including metal, jazz, and ambient music, and ‘art’ styles such as postminimalism and electroacoustic music. His works have been performed at La Biennale di Venezia Danza (2018), the Montpellier Dance Festival (2018), the Kuala Lumpur International Composers’ Series (2017), and in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. He is a graduate of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, and recently completed a master’s degree at the California Institute of the Arts, supported by a Fulbright Postgraduate Scholarship. He grew up all over Western Australia, from Denmark to the Kimberley, and remains a country kid at heart. Azariah lives and works in Boorloo (Perth), on Whadjuk Nyoongar Boodja.
