The worldwide interest shown in Dunedin and New Zealand musicians continues unabated and we are proud to be presenting this via the internet”

Future roll-outs planned include: customizable skins, wiki-style searchability, telco integration and music downloads.’s management team includes University of Otago graduates and employees.
