What Is Music

What Is Music is an experimental music festival held in Australia. It originally emerged in Sydney in 1994 as a platform to expose unusual contemporary musical forms that were otherwise unknown to the general public at that point in time. Simultaneously, it challenged the prevailing preconceptions as to what in fact constituted music.

The festival has been coordinated by Oren Ambarchi and Robbie Avenaim since its inception. In recent years the festival has travelled to Melbourne and Brisbane. Oren Ambarchi has since left the What Is Music team.

    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    Nothing is capable of being well set to music that is not nonsense.
    Joseph Addison (1672–1719)
