This presentation will outline the new Australian Centre for the Arts and Technology (ACAT) at the Canberra Institute of the Arts which concentrates its efforts in the fields of computer music and computer animation. ACAT is somewhat unusual in that it grew out of an established electroacoustic music studio rather than a computer graphics and animation centre. As such it specialises in time-based interractions in the aural and visual domains. The presentation will detail the research and development work in the area of music composition, animation and electrospatial art, leading to the establishment of the Centre and will outline its directions in the areas of education, performance, recording, publishing, consulting and research and development.
