Listen to the Australian Art Music playlist: July 2024: New Releases

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

It’s been a while since we’ve checked out all the latest releases in Classical, Jazz and Sound Art. It’s exciting to see the continuing impact of ABC Classic and Jazz’s Commissioning Fund, as well as the hard work of independent labels like Room 40 and the ongoing series of music being created for Hush.

Similarly, it’s great when local music is performed and recorded by international artists and bands, or supported by international labels. These interconnected networks of passionate and talented people are what keep the art form alive.

If I missed your last post, feel free to share (email is best) and I’ll keep it in mind for my future playlists.

If you still want more music to explore I always recommend: Australian Art Music Archive, With all 1,407 previously featured tracks (nearly 140 hours of music) and our new community listening project: 1,000 Curious Ears – this playlist is available in the June issue Here and on Community Facebook group.

Until next month, we hope you will be surprised and delighted by the innovations.
