Summary

An edited transcript of tape recordings of discussions held at the Australian National Composer's Conference, organised by Sounds Australian, Sydney, 1988.

This book captures a substantial part of the proceedings at the Australian National Composers' Conference organised by Sounds Australian in Sydney in 1988, the year of European Australia's Bicentennial. The conference was the first major gathering of Australian composers for the fifteen years since the Canberra conference of 1973. While musical composition has been an element of Australian cultural life since the early days of European settlement, it is generally held that compositional practice became truly contemporaneous stylistically with advanced practice in Europe and North America only from 1960 onwards. Although not entirely accurate, this is a serviceable enough characterisation. Those fifteen years leading up to the 1988 conference take in more than half of the subsequent period - a time of enormous development, diversification and maturation.
