MELBOURNE MUSICIAN AND COMPOSER SIMON CHARLES HAS BEEN AWARDED
THE APHIDS-REALTIME RESIDENCY.

Simon plays saxophone, has a Bachelor of Music degree from Melbourne University and is currently undertaking a Master of Music degree in performance and composition at the Victorian College of the Arts. His compositions include Marionette for narrator, electro-acoustic playback and video, created in collaboration with poet Jessica Wilkinson for the 2007 This is Not Art Festival in Newcastle. Other 2007 compositions include Evocation for Bosgraaf and Elias (Netherlands) for bass recorder, guitar and electro-acoustic CD and Encapsulate for ensemble Onomatopoeia, for soprano, alto, cello and two percussionists. Simon has also curated concerts and been an artist-in-residence at the Bundanon estate in New South Wales.

Aphids, the Melbourne based company specialising in international cross-artform collaborations, and RealTime, the magazine promoting innovative Australian art to the world in print and online, have come together to offer this residency for an emerging Victorian reviewer in music and sound art. Part of the Aphids Residencies and Mentoring Program for young and emerging artists, funded by the Myer Foundation, the residency takes the form of a mentorship with Victorian RealTime reviewer, Chris Reid, and two visits to Sydney to work with the editors of RealTime.

RealTime looks forward to working with Simon and seeing his writing on our pages. RT
