We Could Play that Last Centure: Archiving 20th Century Digital Performing Arts in Western Australia
The launch of the Western Australian New Music Archive presents an opportunity to reflect on the materials that have been collected for it, and what materials could be included into collections such as this for the future to increase the possibility that works created by Western Australian composers since 1970 will be re-performed in the future. What need is there to preserve the electronic instruments of the 20th and 21st century? This paper uses a recent example of an Western Australian artwork, and interviews with \Vestern Australian composers of electronic music who have been active in the late 20th century to demonstrate some local challenges and successes in the preservation of digital artworks and compositions within 50 years of their creation.
