Queensland composer, electric guitarist and improviser Liam Flenady is among seven recipients of the 2019 Art Music Fund.
Since 2016, the Art Music Fund has awarded a total of more than $400,000 to Australian and New Zealand composers creating brave, new and lasting works. The 2019 Art Music Fund's $100,000 allocation will support a range of projects coming to life - from concertos to opera to the avant-garde.
Liam's project centres on the composition of a new 30-minute, continuous multi-movement work The Five Seasons for trombone and percussion, based on themes of geological time, non-Western concepts of time and seasons, and ecological crisis.
