Gallop House residency

In 2018 Moore was selected to be composer in residence at Gallop House on the banks of the Swan River in Perth. During her period at the house she wrote an article for Tempo magazine entitled Porcelain and wrote a new work entitled Lucidity – Eyes of Hands for the Dordrecht Bach festival to be premiered on 21 June 2018. Her community involvement included giving lectures at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts, University West Australia for both the composition departments and post-graduate research. She gave a radio presentation for the series Difficult Listening on RTRFM with presenter Michael Terren and a listening session of Sacred Environment at Highgate Continental hosted by Josten Myburgh. A substantial constituent of this tour was devoted to her collaboration with percussionist Louise Devenish, with whom she has a close working relationship. Devenish and Moore rehearsed Coral Speak (2016) which Devenish will be touring Australia in May, as well as sketching and workshopping percussion instruments and sampling material for Moore’s upcoming major work for Devenish entitled Bloodwood Series. Devenish performed Coral Speak at the UWA Day of Percussion and continues to perform this piece in major cities including Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane.
