Susan Hawkins has international experience as composer collaborating in contemporary dance, animation, theatre, and sculptural sound installation - with highlights including performances at Tate Britain (UK) and the San Francisco International Arts Festival (USA). She has been artist in residence with CESTA (for the 11th Arts Festival of International, Interdisciplinary Collaborations, Czech Republic) and the Bundanon Trust (Australia), has participated in the International Course for Professional Composers and Choreographers (UK). She's also dabbled in radio, having created a feature documentary for Encounter for ABC Radio National (Australia).

In 2011 Hawkins released her second EP, LIGHT FROM BELOW, receiving extensive radio play on the ABC network (Radio National, Triple J, and ABC Classic FM), and community radio (through the AIRIT program). In 2012 Hawkins collaborated with Brisbane choreographer Gareth Belling, and Collusion Music on a number of cross-disciplinary projects, including the new ballet Transient Beauty. Hawkins is composer-in-residence with Collusion Music at Griffith University in 2013.

"Choreographer Gareth Belling and composer Susan Hawkins are to be commended for having delivered a work which expresses the human condition in unexpected and enlarging ways... This ambitious work sparkles with the bedazzling genius of Rachael Walsh and Janette Mulligan. They transport the audience for a moment into an ethereal beauty hidden inside even the most dysfunctional of relationships." (Matt Foley, Stage Diary)
