Kezia Yap is a Sydney-based composer who specialises in acoustic chamber, and mixed music (a medium that combines live acoustic instrumental performance with electronic elements). Her music has been described as “full of unexpected light,” as it aims to combine a sense of energy and organic interaction between the sound, space, performers and audience. Her work centres around an exploration of timbre and space, and the way these elements can be extended through the inclusion of electronics.
In recent years, she has been commissioned by various ensembles and performers including Petrichor Sax, Dan Thorpe and Richard Narroway; and worked with renowned ensembles such as Ensemble Offspring in 2015, and the Meraki Chamber Players who premiered “it melted with the rain” at the 2017 Connecticut Summerfest. Her music has been premiered and performed around Australia, as well as in New York, Connecticut, Seoul, Madeira and London, and broadcasted on ABC Classic FM, Fine Music 102.5 as well as included in Making Waves playlists.
