Antonia Barnett-McIntosh



Antonia Barnett-McIntosh is a composer, performer, sound artist and freelance curator with an interest in working across disciplines, particularly with speech and language. She has collaborated extensively with musicians, theatre and filmmakers, dancers, visual artists and poets. Antonia's compositional concerns lie in the specificity of sound gestures and their variation, translation and adaptation, often employing chance-based and procedural operations.

Antonia studied music composition at Te Herenga Waka-Victoria University of Wellington, receiving a First Class Honours degree with Distinction and a Bachelor of Arts in History in 2006. In 2010 she graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London with a Master of Music in Composition.
