The Australasian Computer Music Association was founded in 1989. The organisation provides a forum for new compositions, information sharing, and research about music technology and computer music, principally throughout Australia and New Zealand. The Australasian Computer Music Association is a community of composers, performers, teachers and technologists who have an interest in, and are making or supporting music making with computers. The main activity of ACMA is an annual conference, usually held in a capital city of Australia or New Zealand, which is a forum for the members' activites, music and research. In addition there are sometimes locally organised events such as concerts and seminars.
