The Australian Music Centre offers various categories of representation to eligible composers, improvisers, and sound artists.
AMC artist representation entitles artists to the documentation of works and associated materials in the AMC collection. Our catalogue encourages a focus on musical work and artist biographies, as well as the broader documentation of a work's context. For composers working with notated music, we will make available scores for sale, and for all artists represented with the AMC, recordings or other materials in digital formats can be made available on a commercial or non-commercial basis. For performers, biographies, discographies, and prospective performances are promoted by the AMC, and performance histories also maintained.
