More Talk, Less Action’ is a series of events that provides a forum to conversations about contemporary cutting-edge music, along with performances relevant to the topic discussed. After two successful series through 2013 and 2014, More Talk returns for a special one-off, free event at a new venue.
Join Clinton Green, Greg Wadley and three artists working closely with contemporary composition – Kate Neal, Sean Baxter and Alexander Garsden – as they explore the question: What does it mean to be a composer in Australia today? We’ll interpret this question on several levels: Philosophically – Where does composition stop and improvisation begin in an age of open-ended and graphical scores? Practically – What are the everyday hurdles and rewards of being a working composer? Career – What challenges do composers face, and what advice would our panel offer a young Australian contemplating life as a composer?
Also featuring performances by Alexander Garsden and Sean Baxter.
