Sonya Lifschitz is a pianist working across many contexts, with repertoire spanning from 15th century Faenza Codex to works written for her today. She is known for her fiercely imaginative, daring collaborations across film, animation, spoken word, visual and performance art. Described as “a life force of extraordinary density and capacity” by a critic following a recent performance of Stalin’s Piano, Sonya’s artistry combines bold adventurousness with unparalleled musicianship. She’s active as a soloist, serial collaborator, artistic director, educator, radio personality and arts advocate.

Robert Davidson has been making music from language since childhood. He has created music from the voices of Australia's Prime Ministers, from 100 years of radio broadcasts and from stories of asylum seekers and indigenous members of Australia's "Stolen Generations". With his ensemble Topology he explores a wide range of cross-genre collaboration.
