Making Waves is delighted to be acknowledged for our goal of maintaining gender parity among featured composers. Read more about the issue of gender in new music and some suggested ways to address this from  Sally Macarthur, Cat Hope, and Dawn Bennett in ‘The sound of silence: why aren’t Australia’s female composers being heard?

And of course, listen back through the Making Waves archives for an amazing array of music from Australian composers of all genders. As well as providing hours of listening enjoyment, we hope this collection of recordings can inspire and influence the programming of ensembles and major arts organisations!
