The project will strengthen community engagement through building on the existing music tradition to develop music capabilities and create economic opportunities and income with performances by the community to tourists, local festivals and events.

Stage 1 of the project in 2017/18, will see the development of the Women’s Choir to a performing and touring level and the youth saxophone ensemble to be musically proficient.

Two workshops will be held, the first in August 2017, the second in March 2018. The workshops will be held over 5 days with weekly tutoring during the in-between months.

This project will:

•Strengthen the connections Titjikala Community have with society, community, language, and stories of culture and history through participatory music making;

•Develop confidence and self determination;

•Improve school retention rates as weekly tuition will occur during school hours (with the rule of “No School Day, No Instrument Play”);

•Music education and on going performance opportunities give children and youth a broader experience of life and community and increases students’ awareness of future pathways, thus facilitating the effective transition of students between primary and secondary schools;

•Improve mental health through positive participation and physical health through improved diet;

•Strengthen and develop leadership roles.

Donor funds will assist in holding the first set of workshops and be used to support travel costs, employing Indigenous workshop leaders (Warren H Williams – Singer, song writer, musician and Barry Campbell – Musician ) and non-Indigenous teachers (Mark Smerdon – musician/producer and Derek Pascoe – Saxophonist ) and implementing a healthy diet program.

Thank you for your support.

Soundstream Collective is the University of Adelaide’s New Music Ensemble in Residence, a performance ensemble specialising in new music. We’re committed to shaping Australian culture through new music, embracing its performance, practice and reception at all levels of engagement.

We have commissioned over 30 works from Australian and international composers.

since our inception in 2011 our repertoire is wide ranging, from large scale, community events to the staging of avant-garde programs in intimate venues. A large focus of our activities is the expansion of a more diverse audience for new music; this not only keeps us ‘in business’, enhancing our performing and professional development opportunities, but sustains the legacy of new music for future generations.

We perform in various satellite events:
– An annual concert series
– Touring
– The biennial Emerging Composers Forum
– Workshops and residences by visiting luminaries for students and composers
– Public Open rehearsals and Forums
– New Waves Listening Club – audience discussions with composers and music practitioners over wine and cheese in an intimate, informal setting
