Australian Music on ABC Classic FM in March 2011
This month broadcasts feature some unique performances of Australian music, including Elision Ensemble partnering with RMIT's Spatial Information Architecture Laboratory to present a live-to-air broadcast of a new collaboration, Codex-Melbourne, for flutes, clarinets, violin, viola, trumpet, trombone, electric guitar, percussion, saxophones and sound operators developed specifically for this event. Another concert to keep an ear out for is the Southern Cross Soloists performing with Carol Burns as narrator, recorded last year at the State Library of Queensland with five world premieres by Joseph Twist, Kat McGuffie, Paul Dean, Liam Flenady and Lisa Cheney.
