First Nations hip hop artist DRMNGNOW confirmed as Keynote for ACMC



The Australian Institute of Music is thrilled to announce innovative First Nations artist Neil Morris (DRMNGNOW) will be doing the keynote presentation at AIM’s upcoming Australasian Computer Music Conference this August. Through his boundary-breaking musical project DRMNGNOW, Morris explores his ancestral connection to country and Indigenous identity past, present and future with a unique sound that draws on hip hop, soul and adventurous electronic music to share some of Australia’s most crucial untold stories.

About the Australasian Computer Music Conference

ACMC is a festival of performances, installations, workshops, and tutorials that will inspire, challenge, and showcase the research and artistic innovation that the electronic music community is engaging in around the globe. Visit the conference’s official site here.

ACMC will take place on the 26th and 27th of August in Melbourne on campus at the Australian Institute of Music. Due to Sydney’s lockdown restrictions, the Sydney event will be accessible exclusively online, with a full program of sessions available to view remotely during the two day event.

ACMC is a place for members of the electronic music community to share and discuss research and artistic progress in computer/electronic music. This year’s ACMC theme is connections. We want to connect the diverse range of people who contribute to Australia’s computer/electronic music culture, including and especially artists and scholars who are gender diverse, 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.
