synthmoot 2021 cancelled at ACMC due to COVID restrictions

Several synthesizers in a studio


The synthmoot ’21 event was scheduled to be the hardware/synthesiser opening to the Australasian Computer Music Conference (ACMC) next week. Due to COVID restrictions, the synthmoot element of the conference program has been cancelled. Analog Cabin and Ben Carey’s live performances and George Makras’ popular intro-to-modular workshop will be rescheduled some time after the current restrictions cease.

The ACMC conference will proceed in a purely online format. Get tickets here.

About the Australasian Computer Music Conference

ACMC is the annual gathering of the Australasian Computer Music Association, a place to show and discuss research and artistic progress in computer/electronic music. ACMC is a festival of performances, installations, workshops, and tutorials that will inspire, challenge, and showcase our community. Visit the conference’s official site here. This special event is a collaboration with the Australian Institute of 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.

ACMC will take place on the 26th and 27th of August and will be accessible exclusively online. A full two-day program of sessions will be available to view from anywhere in the world. Attendance for AIM staff and students is free. Get tickets here.
