Suzanne (Sue) Moxon is a composer, multi instrumentalist and teacher whose style is influenced by ambient, world music, ethnic, minimalism, soundscapes and jazz. She performs music for piano, cello, hang and handpan, drone flutes and electonics, as well teaching piano, cello, violin, classical guitar, marimba, and drone flute.
Currently Suzanne is playing in a trio with Tunji Beier and Ric Halstead that creates improvised piees as well as performing compositions by Moxon.
Common themes in her works are of regeneration, renewal and growth through transformation. Her music has depth, energy and diversity and has been used in short films such as Die Violine (premiere at Cannes Film Festival - short film section 2014), Site 281 (trailer 2013) , The Suicide Projects (2011) and multimedia projects such as Broken - Harmony House (2002).
Moxon created a series of graded compositions for string orchestra, guitar ensembles as well as marimba groups. These series of works are graded for novice to advancing players and have been performed in schools as well as by various groups throughout Australia. These graded works are designed for players to focus on various aspects of ensemble playing whilst simultaneously honing technique. More detailed information on this series can be found on Moxon's website.
In 1987 she completed a Diploma in Music - Instrumental at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music before heading to Japan where she lived for eight years. She returned to Australia in 1998 and settled on the Sunshine Coast where she works as a composer, performer and instrumental teacher.
Of music and creativity Moxon states, 'Music is the way I express and share experiences and feelings - even more significantly, whenever I connect with people through music I feel a deep exchange taking place that is beyond words - this enriches my life and inspires me to continue creating and exploring the profound depths music offers'.
