Eve Klein


Eve Klein is an award-winning composer, mezzo soprano, sound artist and academic. She designs large-scale, immersive art music experiences for festivals. Drawing together traditional and experimental classical music, interactive performance art, and electronica, Klein pushes the boundaries of genre to find new ways of immersing contemporary audiences in art music forms. Klein is currently leading a VR/AR music creation research cluster at the University of Queensland where she is guiding postgraduate composers on the creation of virtual reality and augmented reality concert works and operas.





Mayella Dewis


Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Mayella Dewis, considers her music as a tool to motivate aspiring musicians of all cultures and socio-economic backgrounds. The industry has allowed her to draw on her 18+ years of experience to work alongside numerous initiatives delivering development workshops and mentoring programs such as the successful Creative Tracks Program. Creative inspirations for program development are heavily influenced by her Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, Malay, Dutch-Indonesian and German cultural roots. She is a firm believer in using her past and present experiences to propel her towards future musical endeavours. Her approach and perspective is that music and creativity is the rhythm to her life journey.
