Soundstream: Adelaide New Music Festival is a celebration of New Music in Australia. The festival was founded in 2008 by Artistic Director Gabriella Smart with the specific aim of creating a national and international profile for contemporary classical music in South Australia and to reflect and shape contemporary Australian culture through excellence in new music performance practice, composition and education. Emerging and established local composers are showcased alongside seminal contemporary classical works from around the world.
As an independent music festival, Soundstream is committed to the development of contemporary music practices and the creation of new works through the support of both emerging and established Australian composers and performers. The result is a unique experience in contemporary chamber music, internationally recognized for its innovative programming.
As the only event of its kind in South Australia, Soundstream is providing audiences and artists alike with the opportunity to engage in a local and relevant forum. Through the support of emerging and established artists, composers and creators, Soundstream is promoting the best of South Australian music and culture on a national and international stage.
