1/ Karen q Temple weekly on Kiwi!

Jason Kerrison (of OP Shop and Kiwi (10am to 2pm)) fame has invited me to do a weekly slot
which is (more or less) the radio version of this newsletter.
If you have any burning music industry questions you would like us to address please flick me
back an email.
It airs sometime around 11.30am on Wednesdays.


=========================================================================


2/ Kiwi lives on!
After signaling that it would close 100% local content station Kiwi due to its lack of commercial
success in the wake of a string of poor survey results, CanWest has instead engineered a deal
with the government which will see the three-city network move to government-owned
frequencies originally set aside for Concert FM.
The new-look Kiwi, under the management of broadcasting icon and current breakfast host Karyn
Hay, will broaden its content, switch focus to genre-based specialty shows and, according to
Broadcasting Minister Steve Maharey, "work towards becoming a not-for-profit organisation."

3/ Independent Music New Zealand Announces New Chair and Board

Independent Music New Zealand, the association of New Zealand-owned record labels and
distributors, has forged into the first part of 2006 with some new developments.

Taking over the role of Chair is Mark Kneebone of Tardus Music, a label which represents acts
such as Minuit and Cassette.

Other Board members announced were Bernie Griffen, Callum August of Dirty Records, Dean
Cameron of Elevenfiftyseven Records, Ben Howe of Arch Hill Recordings, Joost Langeveld of
Reliable Recordings, Jim Pinckney of Round Trip Mars and Steve Popham of King Music.

IMNZ has also been ratified as a member of the WorldWide International Network, a coalition of
independent recording associations from around the world. This is a major step for IMNZ, as it will
be working with similar organisations who represent thousands of independent music companies
from around the globe.

14/ Ensembles wanted for residency project at Luxembourg Gardens (AK)
Vitamin S will be offering the opportunity for ensembles (no need for applicants to be members of Vitamin S) to
take up a two week resident gig for 3-4 nights per week. The idea is that these performances will exist either
before and/or after theatre and dance performances on the same night - for example: we could have a group
playing the after work cocktail hours from 5:30 - 7:30, (pre show) or late night, from 9.00/9.30ish till late. These
slots are for groups wishing to have the chance to settle into a space for a decent amount of time, to play - and
expand their music and ideas in the group, and to an audience. Time slots and scheduling has yet to be
confirmed, but at this stage we just want feedback from those who might be interested. As there is no funding
available as yet, we can only offer door charge payments with a small percentage going back into the resident
overheads. However, I hope you agree, it is an opportunity for local experimental musicians to establish ourselves
in the venue, and to expose unassuming dance and theatre crowds to the fine array of diverse and exciting music
that is happening around them. If you are interested please contact drew at drewmcm@blackbridge.co.nz

One of the focuses of my practice is advising clients on music and entertainment law related
