WRITER LINE-UP // Christopher Healey, VIC


We’re going to print!


In 2018, CutCommon will launch its first ever print magazine. And as far as we know, it’ll also be the first street press publication in Australia dedicated to sharing the stories of young and emerging classical musicians.

You’ll be able to pick up a copy of CutCommon’s physical edition for free when you visit one of the 50+ top-secret venues in our roving launch, which we’ll announce soon enough. (And if you subscribe to CutCommon, we’ll post one straight to your door.)

But leading up to our 2018 launch, we’re going to bring you our writer line-up – so join us as we celebrate and reveal the talent working hard behind-the-scenes to craft this bold new national magazine.



Christopher Healey, VIC


Christopher Healey is an Australian composer.

He completed his Bachelor of Music at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, receiving the Alan Lane and A.G. Francis prizes for his compositions. He later received Honours (First Class) from the University of Queensland, where he was the recipient of the Dean’s Award for Academic Excellence. He is now completing his PhD in Composition at the University of Queensland and is the recipient of an Australian Postgraduate Award for the duration of his studies.

Chris has composed more than 80 works, which have been performed throughout Australia, as well as in Holland and France. His portfolio includes commissions from The Camerata of St John’s, The Australian Piano Duo Festival, Brisbane City Council, QUT, 4MBS, and several others.

Chris cherishes all opportunities to write and have works performed, and has also composed works for dozens of performers and ensembles throughout the country including Australian National Academy of Music students, Ensemble Ardor, Ensemble Fabrique (broadcast by the ABC), Sounding Out Composers’ Collective, Bricolage Duo, Bron Saxophone Quartet, and more.

When not writing music or working on his thesis, he also enjoys writing the occasional music-related-rant for CutCommon’s blog.
