Emerging from Australia’s vanguard of dynamic forward thinking young musicians, Hamish is a highly sought after contemporary percussionist focusing on collaborative chamber and duo repertoire. He is the 2015 winner of the St Silas Achievement award at ANAM, and the 2016 recipient of the Brett and Paul Dean award for best performance of an Australian work. 2017 has seen Hamish work with James Hullick to develop percussion, electronics and voice duo ROTOR ASSEMBLY, and co-found Ossicle Duo with Benjamin Anderson (Bass Trombone). Hamish has performed with the Bolt ensemble, at BIFEM with Elision Ensemble and with Mauricio Carrasco, and with Speak Percussion and Ensemble Offspring.
Hamish has completed three years at ANAM, and holds a Bachelor of Music (first-class honours) from the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music at the National University of Singapore (NUS) with teacher Jonathan Fox. While at NUS, Hamish spent a semester on exchange at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore). He has completed a Master of Music (Research) from Griffith University, exploring how the use of laptop-based sound technology can enhance solo percussion performance.
