Megan Hunter

iPads / synthesisers / electronics

The prodigal artist; having been a founding member, Hunter returned to The Amplified Elephants in 2015 after an extended break. Hunter is primarily an iPad and keyboard synthesiser artist, although her recent return to the ensemble has seen her exploring other instrumentalities. In 2015, Hunter performed in LA LA LULLABY at Federation Square for the Lights in Winter Festival. A highlight for Hunter in 2015 was working on the many collaborative recordings and project developments with a range of invited artists. Nat Grant’s work particularly resonated with Hunter. Through working with Nat, Hunter found that working with iPad technology particularly suited her sonic language. In 2016 and 2017, Hunter joined the women of The Amplified Elephants to perform their show SHHHH at JOLT’s The Book of Daughters in Melbourne, China and Hong Kong, created in collaboration with sound artist Nat Grant. Hunter enjoyed solo physical and sonic performance moments in the ensemble’s most recent show SELF SEEKERS for the Festival of Live Art at the Footscray Community Arts Centre.
