Driving New Music in Australia

Speak Percussion is driving new music in Australia, delivering ambitious music projects and championing the best in the field whilst also continually nurturing new musical talent in a variety of ways.

We are a creative hub of activity working to make new music happen by commissioning, developing, collaborating, rehearsing, performing and recording music.

To continue these exciting and vital programs Speak Percussion needs your help.

Our pledge to you is that we will give all your donated money directly to the art. Supporting nothing but new compositions, new performances and new projects.

Support Speak by donating to our Speak NOW campaign and you will be a crucial part of the creative process.




Your donation, whatever the amount, will have a direct impact on Speak Percussion and our artists in the creation of new work. Real examples include:

Donate $50 to contribute to the purchase and creation of new bespoke instruments, such as modified clay pigeon shooter for our next show Pigeons.

Donate $100 to support the costs of a Before Nightfall performance, a series of artistic encounters with invited guest artists culminating in a free, intimate concert in unique, local spaces.

Donate $500 to contribute to the development and rehearsal costs for the creation of new, major works of scale such as Sonic Eclipse.

Donate $1,500 to support a one week creative development period for our Bespoke Artists Program to develop new works.

Donate $5,000 to contribute to the commissioning of a major new work, such as Polar Force. Your support could help Speak with our musical experiments, including creating music from clay pigeon shooters, or working with 50 community musicians in a mass peace march through the streets of Melbourne.
