I’ve been awarded a residency at Bundanon. I’ll be spending a couple of weeks in the Musician’s Cottage in August. I’ll be working on songs for an album and plan to do some filming using the beautiful setting of Bundanon and surrounding areas for related music clips and album artwork.
This is the first residency I’ve applied for and in all honesty, never considered it previously.
I spent some time at Bundanon as Madeleine’s carer in February 2022, just one month before she passed away. At the time we didn’t know if Madeleine would be able to attend her residency, thankfully I was allowed to accompany her and we had a productive and enjoyable time. I helped Madeleine complete her script for her Darlinghurst Eats Its Young film and did some rough recordings of her narrative. This residency will no doubt bring back some memories.
I’m looking forward to this time at Bundanon; the opportunity to work on my music, take a breath and enjoy that wonderful environment.

Bundanon’s Artists in Residence program supports new work, research and collaborations by professional artists and researchers from around the world. This multi-disciplinary residency program is the largest in Australia and provides artists time conceive and develop new work and ideas in the iconic Shoalhaven landscape.
