About

Clare Cooper has been an active member of the Sydney arts community since she co-founded the NOW now festival and experimental music series. Most of her projects these days centre around futuring and speculative design applied to context, performing, community organising, improvisation and graphic scores. She most recently co-founded Frontyard, a community research and futuring **frontyard** project space in Marrickville.

Cooper has presented hundreds of solo and collaborative projects spanning sound, improvisation, film, print, dance and theatre in 15 countries over the past 17 years including performances at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (UK), OffsiteSuper Deluxe (Japan),mesto žensk (Slovenia), MaerzMuzik (Germany), Instants Chavires (France), Victoriaville (Canada), High Zero (USA), Audio Foundation (NZ), Molde Jazz festival (Norway), Nickelsdorf Festival (Austria), What Is Music?the NOW now, Liquid Architecture, Unsound and Electrofringe (Australia).

As a musician, she's ferocious with strings and sticks, her sound inspired by synthesizers and broken boom boxes. Her works for harp and guzheng have been featured on Australia's ABC, Germany's SWR and UK's BBC. Coopers sonic and written works have been published by the Australian Music Centre, Mikroton (Russia), Splitrec (Australia) and High Zero (USA).

She has relocated to Sydney after being based in Berlin from 2007-2013.
