Otherside of the World project releases tracks

Otherside of the World project releases tracks

In May this year, the British Council launched an innovative creative commons project called Otherside Of The World. The idea was to create an EP of new creative commons music, recorded between London and Auckland (over each day/night), in Red Bull Studios Auckland and the Roundhouse Camden. The project aimed to emphasize the tools available on the internet, and the spirit of sharing and creative collaboration.

Each evening was the changeover part of the session - when the NZ musicians finished recording they would meet with the UK musicians via Skype to discuss the recordings that were about to happen in Camden. Neither set of artists had met each other, and neither had experienced recording a track together. Viva la creative revolution!

The group created an exciting online music project using tools such as Soundcloud, Inbada, and Skype - and the result was an EP with the resulting music will be available for all to use at www.creativecommons.org.nz

NZ musicians involved in the project included Pikachunes, Rackets and Play It Strange winners; and Grammy award-winning musician, Bassy Bob also graced the Red Bull studio, offering invaluable advice to the group.

Otherside of the World is part of People in Your Neighbourhood, a British Council initiative that involves aspiring artists and performers from NZ’s diverse communities, working with the best of contemporary UK talent, to collaborate, create and celebrate.
The programme involves capacity building workshops, online and face to face collaborations and master-classes in creativity.

All tracks are available NOW at http://othersideoftheworld.bandcamp.com/
