Director Biography - Barry Ferrier

Barry Ferrier is an Australian musician and multimedia artist based near Byron Bay, where he is a local pioneer of live music performance. Barry is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and multi-award winning song-writer / composer who has enjoyed a long and diverse career in the performing arts industry.

Born in Sydney Australia, Barry gained early recognition in music theatre, appearing as a vocalist in the iconic original Australian production of ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ at the Capitol Theatre, Sydney and Palais, Melbourne, and later in ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat’ at the Seymour Centre, Sydney.

He was composer for the internationally famous Lindsay Kemp Mime Company, performing in their productions of ‘Flowers‘ in Melbourne, and composing the music in collaboration with Andrew Wilson for Kemp’s production of Oscar Wilde’s ‘Salome’, decribed by the London Times as 'thrilling', and which was a sell out for 18 months at London’s Roundhouse.

He has worked with many of the leading names in Australian music including playing bass with the 80s chart-toppers ‘The Ferrets’, lead guitar for Australian rock legend Jeff St. John, opening for guitar maestro Ry Cooder at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre, and blues legend John Hammond in Byron Bay. Barry toured Australia as band leader and guitarist for the legendary diva and international Superstar Eartha Kitt.

He has written three stage musicals which have been performed and recorded and a jazz opera based on the life of Melbourne gangster Squizzy Taylor.

He was a pioneer of electronic music in Australia and performed his multimedia production "Of Dreams and Machines" at Brisbane QPAC Concert Hall in the mid 80s and composed music for the QANTAS "Light Fantastic" animatronic parades at Brisbane's Expo '88.

He has toured Europe and the UK, performed at many of Australia's leading music festivals, and won awards for his songwriting and videos.

His PhD focussed on how technology has the power to change art, and Barry was previously Professor of Multimedia at Bond University on Australia's Gold Coast.
