We maintain highly active and international profiles in many specialty areas. Our research covers:
We offer excellent support for performance students, including research laboratories and modern performance venues with cutting-edge technology.
We encourage performance students undertaking research at the doctoral, master's or undergraduate level to explore both traditional and innovative avenues of study that inspire them.
The postgraduate program allows students to specialise in the composition areas that interest them most, and all students find ample opportunities for the performance of their new works.
Compositional research is based in creative work such as composing for chamber groups, orchestras, opera and musical theatre, as well as electronic and electro-acoustic contexts.
Our Composition and Music Technology Unit is an essential component of our research profile, and we have some of Australia's most gifted and recognised composers on our staff.
