“Multi-award winning South Australian Composer Kiah Gossner is one of the country’s most innovative and talented young artists”. Drawing inspiration from such composers as Phillip Glass and Ludovico Einaudi, ‘CONTACT’ is a contemporary jazz and classical work for 10 musicians that endeavours to explore the veiled culture of domestic violence.

In 2018 my composition ‘CONTACT’ was presented as a work-in-progress as part of the Adelaide Festival in-Space program. I was lucky enough to be offered inclusion in the 2019 Adelaide Festival Centre artistic program to perform CONTACT at the Space Theatre in November.

CONTACT is a multi-artform performance combining audio, visual & structural elements to create a multi-sensory environment exploring the human emotional journey of domestic violence. I am working with world-class creatives & musicians to make the exclusive world premiere of CONTACT the most enriching live music storytelling I’ve ever had the pleasure of working on.

The show in November requires set design, set construction, scene painting, graphics, lighting design, professionally developed film making for projections & cutting edge poetry. All of these elements (the creatives themselves, & the material resources they need to create) come at a considerable cost which is beyond my humble means.

Donations will be used to pay the creative team a modest fee for their highly skilled services, & cover costs incurred to design & build the set, design lights, create film projections, write poetry, create graphics & to notate all musical parts. Your donation will help bring my composition ‘CONTACT’ to life while also helping launch my career as a composer in the classical & jazz world.

CONTACT helps diversify the presentation of music available within Australia & provides a platform for highly skilled musicians to be involved in a unique theatrical setting. I intend to perform this bold new multi-art work throughout Australia & O/S after it’s world premiere in Adelaide.

I need your help to enable the realisation of all the elements of CONTACT & to help further the conversation of domestic violence & its victims. Any donation would be hugely appreciated!

I’ll provide regular updates regarding CONTACT’s progress via email, social media & my website www.kiahgossner.com/contact
