TURA New Music call for papers
Western Australian New Music Archive will be launched at the State Library of Western Australia on Wednesday 20 May as part of the 12th Totally Huge New Music Festival in Perth. Papers for an associated one-day symposium the following day are sought, on the theme of “Western Australian Art Music Activity: 1970 – 2014” to celebrate the launch of WANMA, a digital archive focusing on the Western Australian art music since 1970 to the present day.
The call is for papers and panel proposals around remembering Western Australian music, in particular music with links to Western Australian composers, performers, writers, events, music series, writing, artists and other associated organisations or people. With a variety of composers likely to feature, some include Ross Bolleter, Alan Lamb, and David Pye, with ensembles and performers such as Alea, the WASO New Music ensemble, Axis 21 and many more. Events also include Club Zho, Totally Huge New Music Festival, WAAPA and UWA lunchtime concerts and any current activity.
