The Sound Collectors
Co-directed by Louise Devenish and Leah Scholes, The Sound Collectors delight in music that explores the use of text, gesture and human physicality with percussion. They collaborate with composers and performers to develop new composed theatre works using percussion to present alongside historical repertoire within this sub-discipline of contemporary music.
Directed by Eugene Ughetti, Speak Percussion has defined the sound of 21st-century Australian percussion music through the creation and presentation of ambitious arts projects. Internationally recognised as a leader in the fields of experimental and contemporary classical music, Speak are constantly seeking to redefine the potential of percussion. Louise has been a core artist with Speak Percussion since 2011.

Together, the ensemble commissions new Australian music and performs celebrated twentieth music by composers such as Glass, Reich, Pärt and Lutoslawski.
