Artology develops the creative potential of young people through experiential learning in the arts.
The Artology Fanfare competition is open to young people aged 12-21 years. To enter, contestants must write a 30-second composition and submit a score and recording online. Eight selected participants will work with mentor composers Nicholas Vines and Lyle Chan to develop their ideas and then attend a live recording session with the Australian Youth Orchestra at Trackdown Studios.
The competition is looking for works that have ‘something to say’ and that draw attention. You don’t need to have a strong musical background – your work just needs to draw attention for the intended use of cueing audiences to take their seats at performance venues.
