Welcome

“Is the truth barren? It’s a matter of usage and continuation. It is necessary to add one’s own listening, patiently, to the body of the new music. Pleasure will come, as an additional bonus.” – A. Badiou, Logics of Worlds

20140119-IMG_2416-3This is the website and blog of Australian composer and activist Liam Flenady.

In addition to hosting recordings, list of works, bio, etc, this website also hosts my blog, which forms an important part of the research and exploration for my PhD, which I am currently pursuing through Griffith University (supervisors: Gerardo Dirié, and Stephen Emmerson). The topic of this practice-based research is ‘Counterpoint for the 21st century’, encompassing aesthetic, historical, ideological, and technical dimensions.
