Reviews

    'Scott’s work is a big gamble: sincerely engaging, never too self-serious, never settling for an easy joke – but happy too, to be playful.'
    - The Sydney Morning Herald

    'One of the more entrancing works I've seen this year... Scott's vocal shapeshifting, enhanced by live looping and pitch-shifting technology, is immersive, their physical presence compelling. recommended.'
