NEW MUSIC SECTOR SURVEY

Experimental art music is vital to the creative and intellectual culture of Australians, a culture that is always evolving and in need of constant reiteration. The sector is also a crucial space for the professional development of musicians and art workers.

The membership of the national New Music Network (NMN) represents around 70% of the leading individuals, ensembles and organisations in the sector. The NMN was invited to represent the views of the sector to the Federal Government Senate Inquiry into the Funding of the Arts on 5 November 2015. In preparation for that, the NMN surveyed its membership on their activities in 2014.

Key results of the survey:
• THERE IS AN AUDIENCE FOR NEW MUSIC INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF CITIES
• THE NEW MUSIC SECTOR IS A MAJOR DRIVER IN THE CREATION OF AUSTRALIAN WORKS
• THE NEW MUSIC SECTOR IS A CRUCIAL EMPLOYER OF MUSICIANS AND ART WORKERS

NEW MUSIC WORKSHOPS




The New Music Network held national workshops in 2015 entitled "Getting New Music Out There" in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in response to demand by emerging artists for interaction with new music professionals and industry experts. The half-day seminars addressed set questions:

How do you fund new music?
How do you begin to compose new music?
How do you develop a program for a new music performance? How do you attract an audience to a new music event?
