about coma

COMA (Creative Original Music Adelaide) is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit association dedicated to the presentation of original music in Adelaide, South Australia. It is musician-led, musician-focused and presents a unique opportunity for the creative development and artistic endeavour of a broad range of Australian composers and performers. COMA is committed to presenting and raising the profile of original music in Adelaide, and in Australia.


COMA was formed by a group of Adelaide-based musicians passionate about increasing opportunities in our city for the performance by both emerging and established artists of quality original music from the genres of jazz, improvised music, new classical and electronic.


Since its inception in 2005, COMA has presented ongoing concert series on the first and third Mondays of every month without interruption, as well as additional special events. In 2017 we celebrate twelve years of presentations with over 30 concerts featuring ensembles from Adelaide, across Australia and beyond. 


If you are a musician looking to perform at COMA, please see the ARTIST SUBMISSION page.
