Further Details

Arts Centre Melbourne is now accepting applications from Victorian based emerging composers under the age of 30 to participate in 5x5x5: Memory.

5x5x5 = 5 emerging composers, 5 new works, 5 minute.

In this unprecedented time of social isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic 5x5x5 successful applicants will explore the theme of Memory. A time when we remember the way life was weeks, months and decades ago; as many rediscover the slowness of the past, village life, home cooking, memories of family and friends no longer available to us, objects that have become keepsakes; but also a time when we celebrate that technology keeps us in touch with the outside world, with telecommunications maintaining human connection and home studios keep creative life alive and vital.

The five selected emerging composers aged 18-29 will each receive a AUD 1,250 commission. Artistic Mentor and renowned composer Kate Neal will meet with composers (online) and offer advice and feedback. Final works will be professionally recorded in their home studio and presented publically from July 2020.

This commission is only open to Victorian based emerging composers. We encourage applications from deaf and disabled artists, First Nations artists, CALD artists and LGBTIQ+ artists.
