Ade Vincent is a prolific and diverse composer.
His music has been heard on television, radio, digital media and
film, as well as performed in a range of venues: from intimate
bars to major music festivals and concert halls.
He fronts and writes music for indie-pop quartet The Tiger & Me who have toured Australia extensively, signed to the ABC label Four|Four.
In 2015 he co-founded Kaleidoscope Audio, specialising in music and sound for videogames.
Soon after obtaining his Masters in Composition he became the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra's Young Composer in Residence and is now working on three new works for the orchestra.
He is currently completing a PhD in Composition at The University of Melbourne where he also teaches.
His appointment as the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra's inaugural Cybec Young Composer in Residence followed his participation in the Cybec Program, during which his orchestral work The Secret Motion of Things was commissioned and premiered by the MSO at Iwaki Auditorium, and programmed again in the 2017 Metropolis New Music Festival.
In 2017 he was awarded the University of Melbourne's Guitar Perspectives Composition Award.
In 2015 he was awarded the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and Melbourne Recital Centre's Composition Award. As a result the MRC commissioned him to write a work for Tinalley String Quartet and Lior that was premiered at the MRC and Sydney Opera House in 2016.
Ade is the driving force behind The Tiger & Me. Singer and front-man on-stage, manager off-stage, he is one of the three primary songwriters, writing and arranging much of the band's material. He has produced some of their back catalogue, including critically lauded first album From a Liar to a Thief and their contribution to The Key of Sea project. In 2012 the band signed to ABC Music and released their second album The Drifter's Dawn, produced by ARIA-nomiated Steven Schram. In 2013 they signed with Gaga Publishing. They have performed at major festivals all over Australia and tour regularly. A third album is currently in the making.
Ade released his debut solo album The Raven in 2015 - an art/pop song cycle setting of Edgar Allan Poe's poem of the same name.
He has written music for video games, short films and ads. His songs have appeared on ABC's The Time of Our Lives and Channel 7's Winners & Losers. In 2013 he provided music with The Tiger & Me for the trailer for Tim Winton's The Turning.
In 2015 he co-founded Kaleidoscope Audio, an audio company specialising in music and sound for video games.
He has received numerous commissions for new music, including works for the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne Recital Centre, Tinalley String Quartet featuring Lior, and MSO violinist Sarah Curro. His music has been published by Orpheus Music and Lyrebird Press. Ade's work for solo alto recorder called Degraves St finished second in Orpheus Music's worldwide competition for new works for the recorder, and was subsequently published by Orpheus Music.
In addition to engineering and recording much of his own material, Ade has recently started working behind the console for other artists. In 2014 he recorded and mixed the self-titled EP by Broads. Hear it here.
He has a Master of Music (Composition) at the University of Melbourne, where he is now studying a PhD with Stuart Greenbaum and Miriama Young. He is also mentored by Brenton Broadstock.
