Dr Clint Bracknell
As a practicing musician and music researcher, I lecture in ethnomusicology and contemporary music at Sydney Conservatorium of Music. My key research interests include the sustainability of Aboriginal Australian song and the continued global impact of popular music.
I was nominated for ‘Best Original Score’ in the 2012 Helpmann Awards and The Australian described my composition work as ‘masterful’ and my ‘live guitar and vocal qualities’ as ‘pure magic’ in 2016.
My Aboriginal family from the south-east coast of Western Australia use the term ‘Wirlomin Noongar’ to refer to their clan and my PhD research at the University of Western Australia (2013-2015) focused on the aesthetics and sustainability of Noongar song.
