AMC's Publications Available as eBooks
This series of three The Composer Speaks books is an important document of the development of thinking around some central issues to Australian composition. The first two volumes, The Composer Speaks I and The Composer Speaks II, can now be purchased and downloaded from the AMC shop.
Discover Australia's top composers, sound artists and improvisers with detailed biographical information on over 900 represented artists.
Program Notes and Analysis
Utilise our rich and growing collection of online analyses and program notes for your research.
Each year, we update repertoire lists for secondary students undertaking the HSC (NSW) and VCE (VIC).
These lists allow you help you find suitable repertoire for your instrument, with access to accompanying scores and audio samples.
For students in other states, these lists and other works in our extensive catalogue can enhance your performance repertoire with Australian content.
Easily search for repertoire using our unique repertoire guide. You can search by duration or difficulty, date of creation or composition, subject, themes or styles or the availability of scores or sound recordings.
Specialist Magazine for Australian music
The Australian Music Centre's magazine Resonate is the only specialist online magazine devoted to Australian composers, sound artists and their art form.
The publication features in-depth articles and discussion, blog articles, news and commentary; interviews with composers, sound artists and performers.
If you are researching within an Australian context, you may like to submit a story to be considered for publication.
Find Concerts Near You
Experiencing music live in concert is one of the best ways to listen and learn. Check our Australian Music Calendar to keep up to date with concerts featuring works by Australian composers.
If you are performing Australian works, or your work is being performed, start building your profile through the calendar. Listings are free and can be submitted online.
