place in Perth, Western Australia.
Please go to the link below to see the call for papers, abstracts due

Please disseminate around your networks- and sorry in advance for any
The theme this year is
Keynote Speaker: Marina Rosenfeld
The inexorably slippery nature of contemporary culture and postmodern
phenomena, such as the deconstruction of identity and distrust in
metanarrative, arguably squeeze the individual into reliance only upon
the present moment. All music emerges (and dissipates) in the moment,
drawing on the immanent "a-subjective pre-reflexive consciousness"
defined by Deleuze in his Pure Immanence: Essays on A Life (2001).
The 2011 Totally Huge New Music Conference is inclusive and devised to
appeal to practitioners and academics, audiences and artists. As such,
the Conference Convenors welcome proposals involving any aspect of new
music, sound art, sound in the media arts, and the study of auditory
culture and environments in relation to the arts. We are specifically
seeking papers and sessions addressing new music, musicology and sonic
practices in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
The THNMF conference is a fully DEST refereed conference that offers
opportunities for presentations of refereed and non refereed papers,
performances, demonstrations and workshops held over two days, and there
is the opportunity for publication in the conference proceedings, Sound
Scripts - published by Tura New Music, now in its 4th volume.
The Conference is presented by Tura New Music, in association with the
Faculty of Education and Arts, Edith Cowan University, including the
Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts.

Exciting news! We have just signed a years lease on the North side of the bottom floor of the Parisian Tie Factory in Poynton Tce. It overlooks Myers Park and is totally choice!
It's a big area with lots of possibilities and we hope for it to be open to the wider arts community as well as the AF community as there's certainly enough room for this.
There will be a venue and gallery, an office with the MP3 ( and soon to be audiovisual) Library, AF CD Shop and we are looking at having workshops, salons, exhibitions, events, lectures, symposia, festivals and film evenings as well as any other suggestions that come our way.
The venue space will fit around 80 peeps but because of the flats across the park, we are looking at events that finish at 10 pm or day shows.
We will be in there from April 18th painting and cleaning the place and getting it ready and any volunteers for this would be greatly welcome : )
We are also looking for help with any of the following items on our wish-list for the space if anyone has stuff they don't need anymore. We can come to you with a trailer closer to the time we move in!
Chairs for events
Carpets, rugs and mats
Big and small cushions
Computers for internet and MP3 Library
Ping pong table
Let me know off-list if you can help out with anything...
Launch will be early May and we will have more news soon about how we are celebrating!!
