Hannah Clemen


Performer and composer Hannah Clemen uses both acoustic and electronic/computer-based instruments. As well as creating works for events, festivals, ensembles and individuals, she has collaborated with dancers, filmmakers and visual artists and her works have been performed or broadcast in Australia and beyond. Clemen has also exhibited several sound installations in Perth galleries. Critic Gordon Monro ( wrote of IntraSpectral II, an installation at the Australasian Computer Music Conference, July 2003: “Clemen’s IntraSpectral II...responds best to singing of relatively slow notes, which suits its purpose to encourage meditative states. Some very interesting timbres resulted...Overall [it] is one of the best interactive sound installations I have encountered.” Clemen is developing several installations designed to encourage meditation, healing and self-cultivation and conducting improvisation and sound meditation workshops as research towards creating ritualistic semi-improvised works for group participation. She is interested in cross-media arts that challenge the traditional dualistic paradigms of audience-performer or artwork-viewer, aiming for a more participatory and ‘ecological’ approach.
