Totally Huge New Music Festival Symposium

Added on by Kenta McGrath.

I'll be presenting a paper at the Totally Huge New Music Festival Symposium, which runs this year in association with the launch of the West Australian New Music Archive (WANMA) at the The State Library of WA. The theme is West Australian Art Music Activity: 1970-2014. I was asked to talk about my films No Encore and Three Hams in a Can; my paper considers how the musicians and composers featured in the films "informed the aesthetic, structure and aural strategies of these two documentaries, and how their sounds and music are received, rejected by and interact with the environments in which they are seen and heard."
