Applause: latest funding and awards announcements

Composer and sound artist Ros Bandt honoured, Four WA regional artists receive $50K, Salote Tawale wins Mosman Art Prize, plus more.

Internationally acclaimed composer, sound artist and scholar Ros Bandt will receive the Richard Gill Award for Distinguished Services to Australian Music at the 2020 Art Music Awards, in a virtual ceremony streamed on YouTube on Tuesday 8 September.
 
Bandt has created a unique and globally recognised body of work over four decades, with some 40 major installations, sound sculptures and numerous intercultural and inter-disciplinary collaborations.

Through her art, she has approached a wide array of acoustic spaces, from water tanks and industrial stacks to vast landscapes and ancient, sacred sites, recording their layers of stories and their many voices, past and present. Her pioneering work provides us with keys to our own identities, and with tools to understanding culturally complex societies.
