About Resonate Magazine
Resonate is Australia's only specialist online magazine devoted specifically to Australian composers, sound artists and their art form.
As a hub for new music discussion, Resonate provides a unique space for members of the new music community to explore, discuss, and debate all aspects of their art practice.
Resonate brings together composers, sounds artists, educators, musicologists, performers, journalists, music organisations, students and audiences from across Australia, and the world, serving to foster a healthy and vibrant online artistic community.
Published by the Australian Music Centre, Resonate encourages discussion about all aspects of new music. Whether you're a professional musician or a complete novice, Resonate is about engaging with Australia's new music scene. The publication features in-depth articles and discussion, blog articles, news and commentary; interviews with composers, sound artists and performers.
While the Australian Music Centre mostly solicits interviews and articles for publication on Resonate, we also encourage submissions from our readers - but please note: forwarding an unsolicited article does not guarantee publication. Writers should contact the editor to discuss their work first.

The publishing of the Journal is currently on hold. This online publication was the successor of the AMC's hard-copy Sounds Australian (54 issues published between 1987 and 2006), which featured topics such as Australian tertiary music education, Australian music for the screen, new music performance, the teaching and learning of composition, and Australian music discourse.
