Bio

My singing practice takes inspiration from Tuvan and Mongolian overtone singing, Inuit throat singing, sound poetry and an ongoing exploration of extra-normal vocal technique.

I also take influence from industrial musick, trance, and drone; insight meditation practice, urban/industrial shamanism and chaos magick; feminist, queer and trans praxis; and Discordianism.

As a research, I have interests in feminist, queer and trans politics, intersectionality and ethical engagements with postmodern culture(s), with a focus on writing against normative narratives. A critical engagement with the ethics of performance, cultural appropriation and privilege form the core of my praxis. I use the moniker Sage Pbbbt for vocal performance work and my name Sage J Harlow for writing.

Sometimes I play the drums. Sometimes I write pieces of musick.

Pronouns: she/her.

 

I recognise the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of this country; I recognise the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation as the traditional custodians of the land where I live (Perth, Western Austalia).
