Composer: Nicole Murphy

Interviewed by: Sascha Kelly

This conversation was recorded on 8th of May, 2017, in the QUT Studios, Kelvin Grove, QLD, Australia.

Show Notes

“Any opportunity to create is the right one, generally. If you’re someone who is compelled to create, then you’re excited about every project. The thing I love about it is every project is so different.”

Nicole and I met at The Boys cafe at QUT Kelvin Grove on a lovely August afternoon in Brisbane. After getting our caffeine fixes, we walked over the road to the building where Nicole works as the Composer in Residence at the Queensland Academy for Creative Industries. Nicole speaks passionately about the importance of education, her work processes, and the way technology has helped develop her ability to collaborate with people all over the world.
