Michael C Smith: Arias from the Eastern Suburbs, Boomchild, Sutras from a Singer, Yes Camino. 


From 1977 to 2000 I worked freelance as an actor and singer in Theatre, Television, Film, Musicals, Opera, the Concert Platform, Avant Guard Contemporary Music Theatre and the development of New Australian Work. 

In 1995 I embarked on an exploration of the Contemporary Australian Singing Voice. There is a problem with vocal identity in Australia; Australian theatre singers impersonate cast recordings from other countries. From 2004 to 2017 I practiced as a Teacher and Vocal Consultant around the Commercial Music Theatre and Recording Industries from my private studio in Sydney. THE CONTEMPORARY SINGING STUDIO evoked the Atelier studios of artists like Rembrant, Monet and Brett Whitleley.


SUTRAS FROM A SINGER documents my studio practice which fuses Yogic, Musical and Visual Art concepts. 

Camino: I love the people I meet as a minimal traveller. I’ve walked the Camino de Santiago three times now. YES CAMINO is a work made of 196 Aphorisms and images made over a 28 day walk.

Since 2012 I’ve been working on two recordings: ARIAS FROM THE EASTERN SUBURBS and BOOMCHILD. These programs are accompanied by a photographic mural in black and white. That's next.
