Louis Frere-Harvey

Original Composition


Louis combines his training in percussion, his passion for electronic dance music and his understanding of movement, to create energetically percussive compositions, uncovering the origins of rhythm within the body and its relationship to the music.

After completing studies at WAAPA, Louis began touring as a DJ under internationally acclaimed Command Q touring Australia, NZ and North America. Following a decade of Command Q, Louis began working as a freelance composer, collaborating across the mediums of dance and theatre.

Louis has collaborated with multiple award-winning companies, directors and independent Choreographers, such as Izzac Carroll’s ‘EGOTIST’ for Project Animo, Brooke Leeder’s ‘Structural Dependency’ for PERTH FESTIVAL 2021, NICA’s ‘ECLIPSE’ with Sally Richardson, Mitchell Harvey Company’s debut ‘MINDCON’, and STOMPIN Dance’s 2023 major season.

Louis was the recipient of Minderoo Foundation’s inaugural Artist Fund 2021, as well as involvement in STRUT Dance’s SEED residency and SITU-8 programs, TasDance’s AIR with Robert Tinning, and most recently received a 2022 Performing Arts WA award for ‘Outstanding Composition 2022’.
