Welcome to the AGSC

The AGSC is dedicated to supporting all established and emerging screen composers in Australia, helping them to navigate the ever-changing challenges of scoring for film, television, games and other media.

As the only dedicated hub for professional screen composers in Australia, the AGSC is the central point for the Australian screen composition community, providing information, resources, advocacy and support for its members, addressing important industry topics through its regular newsletters, 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 to the ownership of copyright and publishing of their work, commensurate compensation for music commissioned, and functions 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, supporting the continued sustainability of screen composition for our diverse and talented member community.
