Archiving Western Australian New Music Performance

Catherine Anne Hope, Adam Trainer, Lelia Green

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


Art music has become more complex over the course of the last century. The advent of sound recording means the iteration of a work is now more complicated than a score on paper, and the advent of computing means that the work may no longer exist solely on paper, or even on paper at any stage, but rather exists in a number of forms. How do we navigate the process of remembering and archiving music, and the documents associated with it, particularly when the work may be more closely tied to process and performance than to a score?
