NZ Music Month Summit

NZ Music Month Summit

The Auckland Museum hosted the official NZ Music Month Summit on Saturday 24th May, where those keen to learn from a range of music industry specialists filled the auditorium.

Presented by the Music Managers Forum and the New Zealand Music Commission, the Official NZ Music Month Summit was an exceptionally informative day of seminars covering the “Three D’s” of the music business; Artist development, International development and Songwriting development.

The Official NZ Music Month Summit, held annually, has become the must-attend event in the NZ Music Month calendar with the numbers attending this year’s Summit exceeding 170 participants.

A range of musicians, self managed artists, managers and people eager to enter into the music industry attended the seminars, commenting the Summit was "valuable, informative, honest and a great opportunity”. Others mentioned they “appreciated the variety of all industry speakers & musicians. All were articulate, open and sharing”.

The speakers on the day shared their knowledge and experience to an extremely interested and engaged audience.


NZ Music Commission Chairperson Vicky Blood commented “I've been in the music business for a very long time but I still found plenty to learn at this year's Summit. It was wonderful to have so many of our best managers enthusiastically involved in the sessions, and keen to support the next generation. Supporting our newer artists and managers like this is how we can ensure that NZ music continues to thrive”.

Paul McKessar agreed, mentioning, “It is a pivotal time for local music. An event like the Summit shows there's an eagerness for the industry to grow and foster more professionalism and ideas”.

A massive thank you to Recorded Music NZ, APRA and all the speakers, without whom the Summit would not be possible.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
