Alyx Dennison is a singer-songwriter, composer and sound artist living and working on Wangal and Gadigal land. She was one half of beloved experimental pop duo kyü alongside Freya Berkhout, releasing two critically acclaimed albums before disbanding on a high in 2012. In 2015, her debut solo LP was lauded as a marked evolution from her previous work, with music journalist Kate Hennessy writing of her “ability to take pain to the loom and spin it into pure light”.
Since then, Alyx has established herself as a highly versatile composer and sound artist, moving across contemporary art, dance, film and theatre. She has written original music for Belvoir St Theatre, Griffin Theatre, Sydney Dance Company, Australasian Dance Collective – as well as some of the country’s most exciting choreographers and performance makers, including Charmene Yap, Cass Eipper, Thomas E.S. Kelly, Taree Sansbury and Sara Black. In 2022, she scored Lauren Brincat’s large-scale performance project Other Tempo, for the Sydney Opera House and Vivid Sydney.
In 2022, Alyx will be releasing her anticipated sophomore LP, Fine. Good. Great. Super., which will be previewed in full at Phoenix Central Park, with a slew of special guest artists and friends. Here, she re-emerges confident and self-assured – taking the many tendrils of her practice and wrapping them tightly around her new body of work.
