My book about the music that David Lumsdaine composed between Kelly Ground and Cambewarra is now out!
Funding is available for a three-year PhD studentship to research Australian electronic music composed in the 1960s and early 1970s. This funding takes the form of either a stipend of $22860 pa for a home student, or the equivalent amount for an international student to pay fees and expenses.
The studentship will be within the School of Arts and Media at The University of New South Wales (http://sam.arts.unsw.edu.au), and will be supervised by me.
Proposals are welcome that consider the topic (or a closely related topic) from any perspective. (Works that may form the basis of the research include: David Lumsdaine Big Meeting, Caliban Impromptu, or Looking glass music; Nigel Butterley’s In the Head the Fire; Barry Conyngham’s Through Clouds; Martin Wesley-Smith’s Vietnam image or Doublets 2 (a).)
The PhD may begin either the second semester 2012 (by the end of August) or the first semester 2013 (by the end of March).
