Leah Blankendaal is a versatile and diverse musician. She has been recognised as both an up and coming composer and an accomplished arts writer, having received awards in both these fields.
As a composer, Leah specialises in creating performance art and cross media installation. In 2013 she created A Thousand Facets, a sound and photography installation with photographer Darren Smith. This work was recreated in 2015 as ‘The Light, The Night, and the Half Light’ for an exhibition at the Brunswick Bower. She has had pieces performed across Australia, including most recently at the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Tasmania and at the Australian Flute Festival in Canberra.
