Grace Ferguson | Composer

Grace Ferguson is a Pianist, Composer, Sound Designer and Piano Teacher who is based at Eastmint studios on Kulin Nation lands. Her dynamic and intimate works draw from her classical music training whilst also significantly departing from this genre through her interest in non-western traditions of music, integration of low-fi electronics and love of improvisation, "to play without inhibition or apology for what results from this lack of inhibition".

In live contexts, Grace is primarily interested in creating reciprocal listening experiences between herself and the audience rather than performing at them. In June 2020, her debut solo piano LP Voler (Music Company) received worldwide critical acclaim and reached #4 on AIRs Independent Music Charts. Grace has contributed to several new Australian theatre, dance and film projects, including an extensive tour with the multi-award winning, We All Know What is Happening by Samara Hersch and Lara Thoms; a devised theatre work that examines Australia’s relationship with the Republic of Nauru, performed by seven children/activists.
