This week on State of the Art, composer and sound artist Nat Grant speaks about the Australasian Computer Music Conference (ACMC).

While this year's conference will take place online rather than in person, ACMC is an opportunity for the community to gather and discuss research and artistic progress in computer/electronic music. It’s a festival of performances, installations, workshops, and tutorials that inspire, challenge, and showcase the community.

Taking place July 8-11, the 2020 theme is inclusion. With organisers wanting to highlight the diverse range of people who contribute to Australia’s computer/electronic music culture but may not normally attend an academic conference, including artists and scholars who are young/emerging, from regional/remote areas, who have a disability, who are First Nations People, who have low/no income, who are engaged in community music making, or who simply work outside of academia and mainstream institutions.

For more information head to the ACMC website.

Tune in for State of the Art every Wednesday morning from 8.30am on The Breakfast Spread for the latest arts news.
