The Sound Collectors
The Sound Collectors are Louise Devenish (WA) and Leah Scholes (VIC). Formed in 2012 to create a platform to explore our shared interest in percussion theatre, The Sound Collectors delight in music that explores the use of text, gesture and physicality with percussion. These explorations have resulted in a collaboration with fashion designer New Model Beauty Queen, residencies at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts and commissions from composers including Mark Applebaum, Cat Hope, Lachlan Skipworth, Michael Askill, Elise Reitze and Robert Davidson.
‘Thanks to Devenish and Scholes’ sensitivity and precision as performers, the concert was a revelation as to the merits of text and gesture-based works.’ Partial Durations
