Welcome to the Australian Art Music playlist! A monthly playlist of classical, jazz, experimental and electronic music focused on contemporary Australian composers, musicians and sound artists.

Australian Art Music Playlist September 2023

Art doesn’t exist without context. Artists also don’t exist without context.

One of the very powerful things about creativity is our ability to listen, respond, and transform our experiences into another form to be shared. This month’s playlist brings you a range of voices, experiences, and topics, across many genres. But, I encourage you to slow down and spend some time listening to what these pieces and their artist have to say. Maybe look up their other work, check out their website or socials. Let art be your portal to see or hear things from outside of your own experiences.

Let’s all spend a little time listening this month.
