MODART is the Song Company’s biennial young composer forum, actively supported by the Australian Music Centre and ABC Classic FM. MODART gives young composers the opportunity to develop new vocal work in close collaboration with the singers of the ensemble and their director, Roland Peelman. MODART13 is the 6th edition of this composer development program, originally initiated by the Song Company and the AMC.
Five emerging composers from Australia and three from overseas participate in MODART13: Michael Bakrnčev (Queensland), Adam Cook (ACT), Owen Salome (New South Wales), Dylan Sheridan (Tasmania), Marcus Whale (New South Wales), Yeo Chow (Malaysia), Daniel Lo (Hong Kong), Celeste Oram (New Zealand).
MODART13 culminates in two concert performances of the participants' new works, organised in Sydney (27 September) and in Canberra (28 September).
Featured non-Australian music: new works by Celeste Oram, Daniel Lo, Yeo Chow
