Our Music As a Business

Our Music As a Business
 
The NZ Music Managers Forum and the NZ Music Commission are proud to announce the return of The Official 2013 Music Month Summit on May 25th.
 
The theme for this year’s summit is “Your Music As A Business”.
 
The Summit is a FREE day of seminars featuring musicians, music industry specialists and traditional business practitioners who discuss and explain the behind the scenes intricacies of the New Zealand music industry and how you should look at treating your music as a business.
 
The Official NZ Music Month Summit
Q Theatre, 305 Queen Street, Auckland
Saturday May 25th
10am to 5pm
 
SEMINAR ONE – Your band as a brand
Presented by Te Puni Kokiri
 
10.00am – 11.00am
How and where bands promote and distribute their music has evolved from the traditional, resulting in a need for a change in their approach to marketing.  We ask why branding has become so important and challenge the thinking… if it’s all about the music, is branding a band selling out?
 
In this seminar you will hear from experts who will give their thoughts on why considered marketing and appropriate branding is so important to the success of the music reaching it’s audience.
 
Speakers: Mikee Tucker – LOOP (Fly My Pretties, Tommy Ill, AHoriBuzz), Ninakaye Taane-Tinorau - Tikidub Productions (Tiki Taane), Phil Bell – Mai FM, Pete Dick – Beck’s.
 
SEMINAR TWO – Radio & the online world
Presented by NZ On Air
 
11.30am – 12.30pm
With the changing music landscape and how people listen to music, we discuss how radio is still an important part of a band’s branding strategy and marketing process.  Does the public still listen to radio for the music?
 
Is it radio or online platforms that have contributed to the rise in single sales?  This seminar looks at what the impact of online platforms has had on bands’ approach to marketing.
 
Speakers: Chris Caddick – RIANZ, Scott Maclachlan – Universal Music, David Brice – The Radio Network, Brendan Smyth – NZ On Air.

SEMINAR THREE – International Trade Fairs
Presented by The NZ Music Commission
 
1.30pm – 2.30pm

SEMINAR FOUR – Be your own record company
Presented by PPNZ Music Licensing
 
3.00pm – 4.00pm
Traditionally releasing an album was left up to the major labels and intrepid independents. However there are many bands that have successfully self-released albums to extremely high chart debuts and critical acclaim.
 
In this seminar our panel will talk about putting together an album release strategy, giving you insight into the tools needed to self release your album and how to do it successfully.
 
Speakers: Ben Howe – Arch Hill, Flying Nun & Laneway, Janine Russell – Noise PR (Beastwars, Iva Lamkum, Clap Clap Riot, Tama Waipara), Kimi Coleman – Let The People Speak Management (Jupiter Project, Artisan Guns, Midnight Youth, Avalanche City, Tom Lark, Titanium, Sound The Ocean, Massad), Tana Tupai – Self-Managed Artist (Tomorrow People).
