The Monash Art Ensemble

Monash University, Alexander Theatre

The Monash Art Ensemble (MAE) is a polystylistic ensemble for established and emerging musicians.

Its aims are the commissioning, performance and documentation of new works of Australian music that explore possible interfaces between musical notation and improvisation; to mentor music students via the engagement of leading practitioners and music staff alongside them in performance; and to engage artistic research to understand and evaluate the challenges thrown up by the creation of new works, particularly in terms of new learnings in improvisation.

This concert will feature a world premiere performance of commissions by Andrea Keller, a collaboration between Cheryl Durongpisitkul and Jordan Murray, and a work from the recent CD release Here Now Hear by Paul Grabowsky.
