What we are calling “difficult music,” in all its highly pleasurable and arresting forms, has not been targeted for support elsewhere. Decibel’s established reputation and track record makes the ensemble ideally placed to attain the best results from such a program, incorporating—uniquely in Australia—a unique mix of electronic and acoustic instruments.
In 2016 we plan to commission three new works from Australian composers for performance in our 2016 – 2017 concert programs. Your donation goes directly to the composers – not to administration costs.
The Difficult Commission Project is endorsed by Bryce Moore, Presenter of Difficult Listening, RTRFM
