Momentum Commissions


Momentum Commissions

In 2020, the Australian Music Centre announced a new commissioning initiative: MOMENTUM.

MOMENTUM sought to connect artists with the generous support of private philanthropists for professional opportunities to create new musical work. Since its inception, MOMENTUM has commissioned new works by Australian composers: Rae Howell, Zinia Chan, Anne Cawrse, Nicole Murphy, Elizabeth Younan, Connor D'Netto, Maria Grenfell, Reuben Lewis, and Helen Svoboda.

With MOMENTUM we aim to foster connections between supporters and creators of Australian art music and provide a creative platform for composers and sounds artists at all stages of their career. The work of creating art is essential, and the MOMENTUM Commissions seek to provide the financial stimulation artists need to flourish in their creative work.
