New composition is the lifeblood of music. ELISION wishes to support the brilliance of composers such as Annie Hui-Hsin Hsieh and Michelle Lou through repeated performances of their work in Asia, the United States and Australia during 2019 and 2020.

We need to be able to commission major work from these composers; substantial work specifically composed and handcrafted for us and for these performances. We need to be able to invest time, energy and expertise into these composers through periods of collaborative creative development. We need to be able to document the entire journey from inception through to concert performance for the benefit of the composers themselves, future audiences and the wider field of creators and performers of new music.

ELISION is an internationally recognised leader in contemporary Australian performance practice. ELISION supports gender equity in its programming. Supporting our engagement with these composers helps position and make prominent Australian creativity within an international context.

ELISION will use donations to support its activity with Annie Hsieh and Michelle Lou. The donations will assist with commissioning, creative development and documentation of the rehearsal and performance process.
