Critical discourse on sound art, cutting edge music and related artistic theory is a virtual taboo in the Australian scene. Whilst performance of these music/art forms in Melbourne and Australia is burgeoning, there is a distinct lack of discourse about what is often very conceptual and theory-oriented art forms.
More Talk, Less Action aims to encourage both critical discourse and open discussion amongst practitioners and audiences alike, in a serious yet friendly and entertaining environment. Each installment consists of a panel discussion and performances from a range of artists, writers, promoters and thinkers.
Events follow this format:
- first performance (20 minutes)
- discussion (45-60 minutes)
- final performance (20 minutes)
- wrap-up, drinks and chat
West Space hosted the first two series of More Talk, and were a great support in getting the series up-and-running, for which we remain grateful.
The series is currently on an indefinite break.
