What does it mean to be a composer in Australia today? More Talk, Less Action returns this Thursday.

MTLA 2014

More Talk, Less Action is back for a free, one-off event at The Channel (on the side of the Arts Centre, next to Fattos overlooking the Yarra).

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 – How are software, new instruments and the Internet impacting how composition is done and what is composed? Career – What challenges do composers face, and what advice would our panel offer a young Australian contemplating life as a composer?

Thursday 13 August 2015 (7:30pm) – free entry
Kate Neal, Sean Baxter, Alexander Garsden
Venue: The Channel, Arts Centre, Melbourne.
