Concept

Twenty two year old guitarist/composer Brett Thompson was the inaugural recipient of the Australian Art Orchestra's Young Artist in Residence. During a six-month program under the mentorship of AAO Artistic Director, Peter Knight, he developed and rehearsed a series of graphic scored works exploring meeting points between composition and improvisation. These works will be premiered in a concert at the Melbourne Recital Centre in July.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
