MUSIC FOR FILM AND TELEVISION

Under the alias Felicity Fox, I have enjoyed a successful career as a screen composer and music director, with a highlight being my role as Assistant Music Director and Composer for the Paralympic Games opening Ceremony in Sydney 2000, where my compositions were performed in the Olympic Stadium by iconic Australian artists such as Renee Geyer, and broadcast to an audience of millions worldwide.

I  have composed, recorded and produced the soundtracks to many award-winning film and television productions, and my soundtracks have received multiple ARIA, AFI and APRA/AGSC awards and nominations. I continue to compose for the screen around concert commissions and other multimedia projects, and composition for moving images is a focus area of my teaching to tertiary students.

I was elected to the Board of the Australian Guild of Screen Composers in 2015, where my focus is on improving representation of women composers in the screen music industry, and facilitating  connections between the education sector and industry.

 

 

Songwriting and Band Projects

 

The Curling VIne

Songwriting and improvisation have always been at the heart of my music practice. I have released two CDs of original songs; the latest, The Curling Vine, is a collection of ballads featuring a band made up of some of the greats of the local music scene. It is an intimate journey of the soul, a coming home from my regular journeys into other realms. The record was launched in 2015 at the Clarendon in Katoomba and Camelot Lounge in Sydney, to full houses and critical acclaim.

“There is an openness of spirit at the heart of the Curling Vine...comfortably emotional...hints of Nina Simone...”

Bernard Zuel, Sydney Morning Herald.
