Funded project

Kristin Berardi

QLD

The Art Music Fund will allow Kristin to write four pieces, which will be the beginning of a project featuring her compositions and singing, extending from jazz into a more singer-songwriter zone.

Leah Blankendaal

SA

Leah will develop a new work for US group Quince Ensemble. Quince are an a cappella group of four treble voices who specialise in new music. This work will examine the movement of bodies through time and how memory is written on, and therefore transforms, the skin.  

Olivia Davies

WA

'Gradient', is a 6-hour immersive audiovisual installation featuring hour-long cycles of electroacoustic sound, emerging photographic projections and a live solo double-bell trumpet performer, creating an immersive and contemplative space in which audience members may sit or roam freely.

Aviva Endean

VIC

‘Stranger’ in a major new composition which will develop the use of video as score, and explore its potential for audience engagement. Video is a powerful tool that I have used as a score for audience engagement in two previous short works: ‘A Face Like Yours’ and ‘Song Invitation: Lullaby’.

Madeleine Flynn & Tim Humphrey

 

VIC

'Witness Stand' is an audio reckoning with site. We sit and pay attention to the here and now, and through a temporal reflection in sound, to the past and future journey of a place and her listeners. 'Witness Stand' as a sound installation places an audience on a series of custom-built seating tiers across a city.

Thomas Meadowcroft

Berlin/QLD

Thomas will compose a concert length piece of chamber music for the piano-percussion quartet, 'Yarn/Wire', to be premiered at New York’s renowned Miller Theater as part of their 2020-1 season. Employing a variety of electronic media, the new work explores the archiving of 'muzak' in real time, as well as the temporal conundrum of 'muzak'; namely, it 'goes on forever'.

Maria Moles

VIC

Maria's project comprises the creation, presentation and recording of an electroacoustic work that explores combinations of percussion, live processing and electronics (synthesizer, tape loops, and manipulation through the use of time/pitch shifters and filters), inspired by compositional techniques of traditional Kulintang music of the Philippines.

Jodi Rose

NSW/Berlin

The 'Global Bridge Symphony' is an evolving composition of bridges around the world, their sounds resonating through the structures, connecting audiences and bridges in a shared listening experience.

Jon Rose

NSW

‘Night Song: Alice Springs’ is a new innovative interspecies work that situates itself between a performance, an installation, and a giant contrapuntal morning chorus - a compression of time and geography into a one-hour sonic experience.
