Product details

Artefacts of Australian Experimental Music: 1930 - 1973 is a landmark in the historical research of early Australian innovative and exploratory music created and recorded in Australia.

Over three years of research by Clinton Green has resulted in this compilation CD that stretches over four decades, a time previously thought by many to be barren of experimental activity in Australian music.

Artefacts of Australian Experimental Music: 1930 - 1973 was launched as part of the 8th Liquid Architecture Festival. The Melbourne launch included a panel discussion on the question of whether there exists a tradition of experimental music that influences contemporary practitoners. The panel featured Pauline Oliveros, Warren Burt, Clinton Green, Rainer Linz and Robin Fox.
