Biographical details

Damien Ricketson studied composition at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague with renowned Dutch composer Louis Andriessen. Damien lived and worked in the Netherlands and Poland and completed IRCAM’s computer music course at the Pompidou Centre in Paris before completing his PhD at the Sydney Conservatorium in 2007.

In 1995 Damien co-founded Ensemble Offspring, a Sydney-based arts company dedicated to innovative new music, and was co-artistic director until 2015. Much of Damien's music written for Ensemble Offspring has received critical recognition through their performances. His works have also been performed by many national and international soloists, ensembles and orchestras including MusikFabrik (Germany), Ensemble Plus Minus (UK/Belgium), Crash Ensemble (Ireland), the Orfeuz Chamber Orchestra (Poland), 175 East & Stroma (New Zealand), Drumming Grupo de Percussão (Portugal), the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, the Sydney Alpha Ensemble, Libra Ensemble, the Grainger Quartet, Continuum Sax, Speak Percussion and piano soloist Zubin Kanga.

Damien’s works have received numerous awards. In 2015 he received the ‘Instrumental Work of the Year’ in the Art Music Awards (AMC/APRA) for The Secret Noise. His string quartet So We Begin Afresh received the NSW State Award for the ‘Best Composition by an Australian Composer’ at the 2008 Classical Music Awards. He also received the international Lady Panufnik Prize (Poland) for Chinese Whisper. Damien has been an artist-in-residence at The Banff Centre, Canada, the Bundanon Estate (Shoalhaven), the University of Wollongong and the Peggy Glanville-Hicks House (Sydney).

He has received commissions from the Warsaw Autumn International Festival of Contemporary Music, the Transit Festival (Belgium), The Song Company, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Symphony Australia, Continuum Sax, ABC Classic FM, Performance Space, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, Speak Percussion and the Portugese-based Drumming Grupo de Percussão.

Recent works have included: The Secret Noise (2014), a hybrid work exploring music and secrecy which featured at the Sydney Town Hall and the Melbourne Festival; Fractured Again (2010), a show-length multimedia production presented by the 2010 Sydney Festival that also toured to China and featured musical instruments made of glass; and Some Shade of Blue (2011), a microtonal work for a newly invented string instrument and retuned vibraphone. In 2016, his works were featured in a profile concert in the ‘Australian Voices’ series presented by ANAM and the Melbourne Recital Centre.

In addition to musical compositions and cross-artform collaborations, Damien has created a number of sound installations including his ongoing ‘Aeolian Playgrounds’ featuring sculptures made from plastic pipes and performed by the public using leaf-blowers. He is currently working on his first opera with director Adena Jacobs for Carriageworks and Sydney Chamber Opera.

Much of Damien’s teaching revolves around fostering innovation and open-mindedness. With a keen awareness of current musical developments from around the world and engaging students’ areas of interest, he likes to promote a culture of shared musical discovery and working towards authentic high-profile public projects.
