Alexander’s work takes inspiration from myth, politics and the historic, whilst also deconstructing and challenging the human condition. His music has been performed and supported by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Australian Youth Orchestra, Queensland Youth Orchestras, The University of Queensland and others. He has collaborated with musicians including Graham Abbott, John Curro, Susan Ellis, Andrew Groch, Alex Raineri and Bradley Voltz, and has studied under leading Australian composers like Brenton Broadstock, Robert Davidson and Melody Eötvös. Alexander was a winner in Artology’s 2015 Fanfare Competition, reached the semi-finals of the Bartok World Composition Competition in both 2018 and 2020, and was awarded The University of Queensland’s Prize for Composition in 2019. His first opera, Edward and Richard: The True Story of the Princes in the Tower, will premiere this July.
Alexander lives in Brisbane, Australia, and signs his work as A. D. K. Voltz.
