Moses Kington-Walberg (he/him) is a composer and instrumentalist from Boorloo/Perth. His practice resides at the intersection of composition, improvisation, and sound installation. Moses’ work indulges in experimentalism and evocation, often employing elements of graphic and indeterminate notation to generate volatile and avant-garde atmospheres. As a musician, he is primarily a trombonist, and has developed an extended practice for this instrument.

Moses is currently studying a Bachelor of Music (Honours) at the University of Melbourne. He completed undergraduate studies in orchestral composition at the University of Western Australia, where he studied under Dr. James Ledger. He is a recipient of the Dorothy Ellen Ransom Prize and West Australian Symphony Orchestra (WASO) Bendat Scholarship, and has had works performed with the UWA Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra, Wind Orchestra, and New-Music Ensemble. He is an alumna of composer development programs with WASO, and has collaborated with a variety of groups including Strut Dance, Tone List, and Outcome Unknown. In 2021 he co-founded Resonant Fields, a collective of composers and performers concerned with showcasing experimental improvisation and connecting emerging artists with the WA improvisation scene.
