Long Distance Composing For Computer Controlled Microtonal Acoustic Instruments, Warren A. Burt Jan 2005

Long Distance Composing For Computer Controlled Microtonal Acoustic Instruments, Warren A. Burt

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

From mid 2004 until early 2005, I was involved in a project to compose works for a series of computercontrolled acoustic instruments, some of which are microtonal, built by Godfried Willem Raes and associates at the Logos Foundation in Gent, Belgium. However, I was in Wollongong. I composed for these works by long distance, using the internet, in a slow, non-real time manner. Further, I composed the music for these instruments using a series of over two dozen mathematical functions that I implemented for John Dunns ArtWonk and SoftStep Windows algorithmic composing environments. The pieces then, are the product of ...


Young People's Help-Seeking For Mental Health Problems., Debra Rickwood, Frank P. Deane, Coralie J. Wilson, Joseph V. Ciarrochi Jan 2005

Young People's Help-Seeking For Mental Health Problems., Debra Rickwood, Frank P. Deane, Coralie J. Wilson, Joseph V. Ciarrochi

This paper summarises an ambitious research agenda aiming to uncover the factors that affect help-seeking among young people for mental health problems. The research set out to consider why young people, and particularly young males, do not seek help when they are in psychological distress or suicidal; how professional services be made more accessible and attractive to young people; the factors that inhibit and facilitate help-seeking; and how community gatekeepers can support young people to access services to help with personal and emotional problems. A range of studies was undertaken in New South Wales, Queensland and the ACT, using both ...


The Struggle For Generational Legitimacy: Youth, Antiracism And Counter Movements In Australia Since The Mid-1900'S, Robert Carr Jan 2005

The Struggle For Generational Legitimacy: Youth, Antiracism And Counter Movements In Australia Since The Mid-1900'S, Robert Carr

Faculty of Arts - Papers (Archive)

This paper examines the ways in which many young people have attempted to directly assert and define their place in Australian life since the mid-1990s. It analyses how young people have attempted to actively grasp a sense of social power through racial debates. Since the mid-1990s, a great number of young people have become active participants on two opposing sides of the antiracism movement. On the one hand, many young people attempted to resist mainstream political rhetoric on immigration, land rights and multiculturalism, partaking in protests and school walkouts. On the other hand, counter to antiracism, there have been movements ...


Alternative Solutions: Multiculturalism And The Struggle For Hegemony In Australian Community Broadcasting, Robert Carr Jan 2005

Alternative Solutions: Multiculturalism And The Struggle For Hegemony In Australian Community Broadcasting, Robert Carr

Faculty of Arts - Papers (Archive)

‘Who listens to community radio anyway?’ This has undeniably been the most common response to my investigations of the history of community radio in Australia. However, for those involved in the establishment of 3ZZ Radio in Melbourne, their struggle was about more than broadcasting to their own cultural and linguistic communities. It had a greater social significance, and would change the nature of the Australian broadcasting sector. The history of 3ZZ Radio is an indicator of the social context in which it is set; that is, 1970s Australia. Its rise and plummet out of existence between 1974 and 1977 reflects ...


Removing E-Wrinkles: An Extreme Inter-Facelift For An Elderly Hypercard Servant, Brian Mccarthy Jan 2005

Removing E-Wrinkles: An Extreme Inter-Facelift For An Elderly Hypercard Servant, Brian Mccarthy

A project to develop a comprehensive set of modules (see Appendix 1) for basic French grammar review and maintenance, and for audio-supported notion-oriented learning activities was begun in 1991 and completed in 2000. The total process involved some 8,000 hours for design, preparation of linguistic data, programming, trialling, and integration into the curriculum. HyperCard was chosen as the platform for delivery because of its considerable flexibility, and because of the area of expertise of staff available for programming and design support at the time. The process was fruitful in terms of both software output, and teaching and learning enhancement ...


Dietary Fats And Membrane Function: Implications For Metabolism And Disease, Anthony J. Hulbert, Nigel Turner, Leonard H. Storlein, Paul Else Jan 2005

Dietary Fats And Membrane Function: Implications For Metabolism And Disease, Anthony J. Hulbert, Nigel Turner, Leonard H. Storlein, Paul Else

Lipids play varied and critical roles in metabolism, with function dramatically modulated by the individual fatty acid moities in complex lipid entities. In particular, the fatty acid composition of membrane lipids greatly influences membrane function. Here we consider the role of dietary fatty acid profile on membrane composition and, in turn, its impact on prevalent disease clusters of the metabolic syndrome and mental illness. Applying the classical physiological conformer-regulator paradigm to quantify the influence of dietary fats on membrane lipid composition (i.e. where the membrane variable is plotted against the same variable in the environment - in this case dietary ...
