THNMF & International Computer Music Conference in Perth
On 9-18 August, Perth becomes the number one destination for Australia's new music fans - as well as artists, composers and academics - when the 11th Totally Huge New Music Festival presents a series of concerts featuring significant international names as well as Australian artists. From 11 August, the festival runs parallel to the 2013 International Computer Music Conference, expanding the program of events further with presentations, live performances and installations.
In tune with this year's ICMC theme, 'international developments with electroacoustics', the program includes a series of concerts of works involving live electronics (piano and live electronics 12 Aug, cello and live electronics 13 Aug, reeds and live electronics 14 Aug, percussion and live electronics 15 Aug). The THNM festival program also features Robin Fox and Speak Percussion (10 August), Michael Kieran Harvey's celebration of Australian piano works (11 August), WASO's Latitude concerts (Smalley, Yapp, 14 August; Skipworth 17 August) and Decibel (Vickery, 16 August).
The festival's artists-in-residence, or 'keynote artists', are Warren Burt, Alvin Curran (US), Agostino di Scipio (Italy) and Haco (Japan), all featured in several events, including a special Keynote concert on Sunday 11 August. The late night Club Huge series, curated by Sam Gillies, showcases West Australian sound artists and experimental composers.
Festival events with Australian works and artists are included in the AMC's Australian music calendar - for full program details, including the international acts, please see also the THNMF website and the ICMC2013 website.
