The ANAM Set

The Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) is excited to realise an ambitious project that will see 67 Australian composers working in close partnership with ANAM's 67 musicians to create 67 new solo/duo Australian works to be premiered in 2021.

In addition to creating over six hours of new Australian music, this project (made possible by support from the Commonwealth Government’s RISE fund) seeks to provide each ANAM musician with the experience of collaborating with a composer to produce a new work that compliments and enriches their musical strengths.

FROM OUR MUSICIANS

“Through these collaborations I am hoping to extend my awareness of the social-political issues that surround us in our current environment. By collaborating with like-minded artists and composers, our horizons are extended and challenged in ways we may not have considered before.”
Alison Fane (VIC) percussion

“The ANAM Set is one of the most enabling and important projects in Australian music I am yet to see, and I am so grateful to be a part of it! As a young performer the process of collaborating with composers in the creation of new works can be the most exhilarating form of the creative process, and I am thrilled to build a new creative dialogue with a composer and discover how we can enlighten each other.”
Henry Justo (QLD) viola

“Working with a composer is one of the most rewarding and fascinating experiences you can have as a performing musician. I cannot wait to embark on this journey with ANAM in 2021, and I look forward to hearing the incredible music that comes out of this project.”
Hannah Pike (QLD) piano
