Stuart Orchard has always been determined to push boundaries. And now after fifteen years’ experience in writing, recording and performing his eclectic indie-pop around Australia and Europe, Stuart is finally pursuing his true musical love: modern orchestral composition.
Since beginning his studies in composition and music production at WAAPA in 2017, Stuart has developed strong collaborative partnerships with a range of up-and-coming artists to produce several film scores and original dance compositions. His song-writing and composition work in award-winning short films Case of Magic and Carnal Privelege showcase his knack for writing both pop-hooks and original sound design.
Lately, Stuart has been a regular feature at Tura New Music improvisation workshops, Screen Academy Projects, performs in several WAAPA ensembles, including the Eneksis choir and EGO (Electric Guitar Orchestra), and collaborates with a number of local musicians and artists.
He gigs regularly as a singer-songwriter, performing his left-field pop, and as guitarist for French cover group G & the French Knights, whilst working on new orchestral works and sound designs.
