Tilde New Music and Sound Art launched at the beginning of 2014, offering a platform and communal space for new and experimental music practice. This includes modern notated music, free improvisation, sound art, and computer music. We offer a supportive and open space for practitioners in these fields to explore new works, to test out ideas, and to examine how new music branches out into, and indeed is intrinsically linked with, other disciplines such as the visual arts, dance, and theatre.
Tilde’s broad aim is to remove the performance barriers associated with challenging new musical works through the use of open space, taking these adventurous works out of the concert hall and by encouraging the full use of the space by the artists, to engage the audience sonically, visually, and sometimes physically. Our musical focus is on works created in the last 50 years within the Australasian geographic region that push performer and audience in new and interesting ways, and to facilitate new networked connections and spontaneous collaborations between artists and audiences alike.
Tilde was started by flutist/sound artist Alice Bennett, and composer Vincent Giles, and our team has expanded to include composer/sound artist Kevan Atkins and percussionist/composer Nat Grant.
The 2016 Tilde New Music Festival will be on the 23rd and 24th January at Testing Grounds in Southbank, Melbourne and the Australian Institute of Music, 120 King Street, Melbourne. More details on the festival page.
The inaugural Tilde New Music Academy, supported by Arts Centre Melbourne, will be held at The Channel from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd January, with performances at the festival.

Moving forward we wish to create a monthly video interview series with performers and composers, to curate a concert series throughout the year, and other exciting things that will be announced in due course. To do all of this, and properly pay our artists and ourselves, we need all the help we can get. Public funding models are unstable at best, and not really how we want to do things. We want all our activities to be about and for the people who enjoy the type of work that we present, and so, we ask you all for assistance.

Goals

The first goal is to get the monthly video and podcast series up and running! $300 per month will contribute a small fee towards the ongoing costs of the festival, but also allow us to pay our interviewee a nominal fee each month.
