Tura New Music and WAAPA@ECU invite proposals for formal papers, lecture-performances, artist talks, master-classes, and panels of three or four papers for the 2011 Totally Huge New Music Festival Conference. The conference will be organised in Perth, Western Australia, on 16-18 September 2011, and the theme of the year is 'immanence'.
The conference, presented by Tura New Music in association with the Faculty of Education and Arts, Edith Cowan University (including the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts), is a forum for artists from diverse areas of practice, along with critics, commentators and academics, to discuss the ideas which underline contemporary new music and sound art. The keynote speaker of the 2011 conference will be the American composer and sound artist Marina Rosenfeld.
Abstracts and proposals are due by 27 May 2011. More information, and guidelines for submissions, are available on the Tura New Music website.
