ABOUT THE COMPOSER
“We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.” ― Arthur O’Shaughnessy
Emma McClughan's passion for music started as a young 3 year old child learning to play the piano. This love has developed over a number of years to incorporate voice, jazz, playing in bands and writing music in a variety of styles and genres. A love of films and film music led to her completing a Bachelor of Music -Composition and Music Technology from the West Australian Academy of Performance Arts (WAAPA) in 2015. Her signature style has become synonymous with heartfelt melodies and incorporating manipulated sounds, field recordings and electronics into compositions. Emma has had the opportunity to score a number of short films, releasing two EP's of electro-acoustic music and is currently recording her first full length album of original works. In 2015 she released Music for Newborns, a collaboration of recording and recreating sounds of the womb with pink noise to help new babies to sleep in their fourth trimester.
“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.” ― Victor Hugo
