Johanna Selleck

 

Johanna Selleck is a composer, flautist, and musicologist. She completed a PhD in composition at the University of Melbourne in 2006, studying under Brenton Broadstock.

She currently teaches composition at the university, where she is an honorary fellow.

Selleck’s compositions have been performed by some of Australia’s foremost ensembles, including the Queensland, Tasmania, and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras; the Australian Contemporary Chorale; Astra; and the Song Company. Her work has been presented at festivals and conferences including the Port Fairy Spring Music Festivals (1998, 1999, 2000); the Composing Women’s Festival (Melbourne, 1994) and National Festival of Women’s Music (Canberra, 2001); the Barwon Heads Festival of the Sea (2009); the 3rd Australian Harp Festival (Canberra, 2008); the 4th CHOMBEC conference (Bristol, UK, 2010); the 30th and 31st Asian Composers’ League Festivals (Israel, 2012; Singapore, 2013) and numerous Musicological Society of Australia conferences from 1998 to 2013.

Her music has been released through Move Records, Tall Poppies, and the Fluteworthy label, and is published by Allans Music, Reed Music, the Australian Music Examinations Board, the Centre for Studies in Australian Music, and the Australian Music Centre. Her research has been published by Cambridge Scholars Press (2004, 2005) and in the 'Australasian Musicological Research Journal' (2004) and 'Re-Visions: Proceedings of the NZMS and MSA Joint Conference' (Dunedin, NZ, 2010). Numerous articles and reviews have been published in the Victorian Flute Guild’s 'The Flautist', the British Flute Society’s 'Pan', the 'Australian Music Teacher' and the ABC’s 'Limelight' magazine. Selleck worked as a music critic for Melbourne’s Herald Sun from 1996 to 2002 and compiled and edited a book of songs by Australian composers entitled 'Ern Malley Songs', which was published by Lyrebird Press in 2013.

Prizes include the Percy Grainger Prize for Composition (1990) and Albert H. Maggs Composition Award (2006). In 2013, a retrospective of Selleck’s music was presented at the Melbourne Recital Centre featuring some of Australia’s most acclaimed performers, including soprano Merlyn Quaife, pianist Caroline Almonte, Silo String Quartet, and conductor Ben Northey. In 2010, a grant from Arts Victoria enabled her to collaborate with the internationally-renowned harmonica player, Corky Siegel, in the creation of a new concerto for blues harmonica. The work will be premiered in July 2015 at the Melbourne Recital Centre.
