Naima Fine

Naima Fine Fine lives in Naarm on unceded sovereign Kulin nations land. They studied composition at Qld Conservatorium and have an Honours degree in ecology. They’re a 5th+ generation musician: their grandma Joanne Fine was accepted into the London Academy of Music alongside Joan Sutherland and Don Burrows, but couldn’t take it up because they didn’t let married women study there. Naima’s favourite instruments to write music on are old family pianos.

Naima’s creative practice embraces composition, ecology, and activism. They work across artforms, explore multi-media processes and outcomes, collaborate on circus and theatre shows, and occasionally produce their own concerts.

Last year Naima had a work commissioned and premiered in L.A.; did sound design for Sydney Mardi Gras’s sold-out theatre production, The Bed Party; was artist in residence at Tilde New Music Festival; did performative live composition at La Mama Musica and the Copy That Copy Cat Festival; and had a work analysed in Routledge Press’s The Digital Score: Musicianship, Creativity, and Innovation.

Naima’s music has been performed and exhibited in shows, concerts and festivals across Australia, New Zealand, The U.K., China, and the U.S..

Naima loves queer feminist sci-fi, queercore punk, bicycling, and playing in Riff Raff Radical Marching Band
