Kezia Yap is a Sydney-based composer who specialises in acoustic chamber, and mixed music (a medium that combines live acoustic instrumental performance with electronic elements). Her music has been described as “full of unexpected light,” and aims to combine a sense of energy and organic interaction between the music, performers and audience. Her work centres around an exploration of timbre and space, and the way that can be extended through the inclusion of electronics.
In recent years, she has been commissioned by various ensembles and performers including Petrichor Sax, Dan Thorpe, Richard Narroway, and the Meraki Chamber Players who premiered “it melted with the rain” at the 2017 Connecticut Summerfest. Her music has been premiered and performed around Australia, as well as in New York and London, and broadcasted on ABC Classic FM, Fine Music 102.5 as well as through Making Waves playlists.
