For immediate release

NZSO-SOUNZ-RNZC Recordings

SOUNZ is pleased to announce the selection of works for the 2015 NZSO-SOUNZ-RNZC Recordings. The following scores by New Zealand composers were selected for performance by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (NZSO) and will be recorded by Radio New Zealand Concert (RNZC) over four days in February 2015:

Alex Taylor - Tiaho Mai
Anthony Ritchie - Underwater Music
Chris Watson - ogee
Jeremy Mayall - convoluted
John Rimmer - Transcend
Maria Grenfell - Hinemoa
Rod Biss - Four New Zealand Bird Songs

Composers submitted works to a selection panel in June this year who then faced the difficult task of selecting the 80 minutes of music for recording. This key SOUNZ project, in partnership with the NZSO and RNZC, produces new recordings of orchestral music, which are then made available as full-length audio on SOUNZ Media On Demand and on RNZC website.

“We are really grateful to our project partners the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Radio New Zealand Concert for contributing their expertise to this valuable project”, says SOUNZ Executive Director, Julie Sperring. “We are proud to be producing these high quality recordings and making them available as streaming audio. Our composers create a wealth of wonderful music that deserves to be heard, and our aim is for these pieces to be picked up for future programming by a range of orchestras here and overseas.”

The first set of 2014 NZSO-SOUNZ-RNZC Recordings, selected in 2013, were recorded earlier this year, with the remaining pieces to be recorded in October. The full list includes:

Chris Watson - sing songs self
Chris Gendall - The Charm Offensive
Andrew Perkins - The Radish and the Shoe
Stephan Prock - Shakespeare Bitters
Kit Powell - I Mate a Māui i a Hine-nui-te-Pō: The Death of Maui
Dorothy Ker - The Third Dream
Chris Adams - Symphonic Dances
Jack Body - Eights on My Teaching
Reuben Jelleyman - Solar Wind
Philip Norman - Earthquake 22.2.11

SOUNZ acknowledges the generous support of Radio New Zealand Concert and the NZSO for this project. More information about the Recordings can be found here: http://sounz.org.nz/events/show/2555

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
