As the only dedicated hub for professional screen composers in Australia, the AGSC is the central point for the Australian screen composition community. The AGSC provides information, resources, advocacy and support for its members, addresses important industry topics through its regular newsletters, and organises member events and social gatherings.
In support of a strong, sustainable and resilient Australian screen music industry, the AGSC advocates for the rights of composers. Current advocacy work includes composer ownership of copyright and publishing, and commensurate compensation for music commissioned, while continuing to function as a support network to its members engaged in screen music.
As a representative body for the screen music community, we are here to help all composers regardless of their level of experience and support the continued sustainability of screen composition for our diverse and talented member community.
