Journal issue #3

New Sounds: Defying Definitions

Edited by Cat Hope — 15.09.08

The third issue of the resonate journal, edited by Cat Hope, brings together a rich group of practitioners of new music, from sound artists, composers and improvisers to teachers of composition:

‘What a privilege to be involved in a journal about Australian music, let alone one whose core theme hovers around such noble questions as these: What is music in contemporary Australia? What processes do we use to make music? Where does music fit? What makes music new? What makes it of this place? It has been my intention, when editing the journal, to choose a variety of current practitioners: those moving on the fringes of what could be called “established” music annals, or those who have contributed to the fabric of Australian musical culture by being something of a maverick – rebelling against their background, experimenting with the new and unfamiliar, and not measuring success by popularity.’
