At QCRC we are practising musicians.
We seek to understand, enhance and share the creative processes within our music making and beyond. We aim to explore performance practices across a range of cultural and historical contexts, compositional approaches and their interpretation, technological innovations including audio recording, multimedia performance and instrument building.
In 2016 this focus area launched a scoping study to understand how music creativities projects are positioned in universities around the country. Projects in this focus area have been supported by the Australia Council for the Arts, Arts Queensland and Ian Potter Foundation.
