5 emerging composers, 5 new works, 5 minutes.
5x5x5 is an award-winning Arts Centre Melbourne mentorship program for five emerging Victorian-based composers aged 30 years and under, aimed at increasing their skills, professional networks and public profiles.
Five emerging composers (mentored by Artistic Director, Peter Knight) have each created a new composition of five minutes, produced especially for five specific journeys. The new works respond to the theme ‘journey’, seeking to illuminate, articulate and draw inspiration from a virtual journey through Arts Centre Melbourne, our Performing Arts Collection and the rich cultural heritage it protects. These original, inspired interactive journeys will take you from the front doors of Hamer Hall to an object in another place and from another time, specifically chosen by each composer as their inspiration.
The compositions were recorded at The Channel and performed by students from the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) at the South Melbourne Town Hall.
