AMC and artist development

Taking part in a program such as MODART can be an eye-opening experience to a young artist at a crucial time of his or her career, and not solely from an artistic point of view. In these workshops and concerts, networks are being formed, partnerships forged, collaborations started. In time, these exchanges contribute to the vibrancy of the industry as a whole.

Explore the process of MODART and other composer development programs from inception to realisation from the perspective of the composers, mentors and performers.

Over the past four months, six young Australian composers - Annie Hui-Hsin Hsieh, Lachlan Skipworth, Tristan Coelho, Melody Eötvös, Christopher Larkin and Timothy Tate - have been busy with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra's 2012 composer residency program.

"Would you write for percussion again?' was the question my collaborator, the very talented Kaylie Melville, asked as we were waiting for Speak's Meadowcroft concert to begin. What struck me was that, while it seems a very obvious question, I hadn't even felt the need to ask it of myself..."
