A pool of $100,000 in funding is available for art composers to create new commissioned work thanks to the APRA AMCOS Art Music Fund. Liza Lim, Sandy Evans, Cat Hope, Erkki Veltheim and Dan Thorpe are amongst 12 Australian composers previously receiving grants. The funding is available for the creation of commissioned work that is innovative, displays professional compositional craft and represents a benchmark of excellence in its field and the work must have committed partners to ensure it is presented multiple times, and it is expected that composers will collaborate with ensembles, orchestras, producers, record companies, broadcasters, festivals and other parties to propose the writing of the work. Applications close 21 February. More at apraamcos.com.au/artmusicfund.
