Jennifer Eriksson completed her initial musical studies at the NSW State Conservatorium of Music studying music education and cello with Barbara Woolley. Her first viola da gamba lessons were undertaken with Catherine Finnis in Sydney. She subsequently studied the viola da gamba with Jaap ter Linden at the Rotterdam Conservatorium for three years where she completed post-graduate studies in baroque music.
Tommie Andersson, born in Sweden and based in Sydney since 1984 is regarded as Australia’s leading specialist in lutes and early guitars. He completed his studies at the State Conservatorium of Music in Göteborg (Gothenburg), Sweden, with a Masters Degree in Performance, studying under Josef Holecek. He was then awarded a Swiss Government Scholarship for further studies at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, where his teachers included Eugen M. Dombois and Hopkinson Smith.
Michaela Davies is a cross-disciplinary artist working with sound, performance, installation and video. Michaela’s creative practice is informed by an interest in the role of psychological and physical agency in creative processes and performance, and how obstruction can change the trajectory of individual development and creative outcomes both in and beyond the context of musical performance.
