Sophie Rose is…

Sophie Rose is a contemporary vocals lecturer at the Australian Institute of Music and a doctoral student at the University of Melbourne, Australia. She is a singer, extended vocal technique enthusiast, composer, improviser, performer, and maker. Originally from New Zealand, Rose incorporates Māori mythology into many works and creates new technologies with collaborator, Cloud Unknowing. She performs and collaborates with Sophie Rose & the Manual Breathing and surrealist music collective Little Songs of the Mutilated. Her exploration of the relationship between creative practice and technology development is ongoing. This concern is reflected in her master’s thesis, which explores the effects of physical and non-physical environments on extended vocal techniques and throat-singing as a creative practice.
