Aidan Charles Rosa : Associate Artist
Aidan Charles Rosa is a Sydney-based emerging composer with a vivid interest in contemporary music, both Classically and Popularly inspired. Aidan's music has a background in post-minimalism but also draws a great deal from a diversity of genres and styles. In addition to his broad palette of stylistic influence, Aidan is a pioneer in correlating Hypermodern philosophy with music-making and has a special interest in re-contextualising the esoteric mysticism of the Renaissance and Enlightenment into a dynamic and engaging musical context. Aidan has worked with the Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble, several Sydney-based orchestras, and has a close artistic relationship with Spiral, the latter of whom performed his 2018 major work Metalworks. In 2017, his work, Kazimir^3, received an international premiere by MCME in Moscow, where it was performed alongside other works by both established and emerging international composers. Aidan has completed a Bachelor in Music, from which he graduated with first-class honours and the Horace Keats award for composition. Having since completed a Master of Music, Aidan is now undertaking a Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
