The call is out for artists across the country with nominations now open for the 2022 Aotearoa Music Awards.

Starting today, musicians, producers, engineers and visual artists who have contributed to the local music industry can be nominated for a Tūī 2022.

Details of the nomination can be found on the Aotearoa Music Awards website. Unless otherwise stated, awards are open to New Zealand artists whose recordings were released between August 1, 2021 and July 31, 2022 (12 months).

This also includes country music artists, with the inclusion of the Te Kaipuoro Tuawhenua Toa | Presentation of the best country music artist announced in February.

Please note that the eligibility period for Top Country Music Artist is for recordings released between January 1, 2021 and July 31, 2022. Nominations remain open until 5:00 p.m., Monday, August 1.

Changes to the Aotearoa Music Awards for 2022

Sarah Owen, Recorded Music NZ Kaiwhakahaere o Ngā Tohu Puoro o Aotearoa, says the prices will be a bit different this year.

There will be Tūī nominations, finalists and winners as usual, with a special invitation-only celebration later in the year – but no televised awards ceremony.

“Recorded Music NZ is proud to be kaitiaki and host of the Aotearoa Music Awards, the country’s oldest award ceremony which has continued to evolve over the years,” says Sarah.

“In 2022, the traditional award show format is under pressure around the world, and event organizers face a different market for commercial sponsorship post COVID-19. In the context of social changes, the pandemic and audience changes, we believe the time has come to suspend our annual awards ceremony for a year.

“It will give us the time and space to reflect and review the Aotearoa Music Awards and make a plan for 2023 and beyond. As part of this process, we’ll engage with artists, partners and the music community to find out what’s important to them.

“In the meantime, we encourage everyone to submit their nominations for the 2022 Aotearoa Music Awards. Although it has been a difficult 12 months, Aotearoa’s creative talent has shone and we look forward to celebrating recording artists again, their recordings and the realizations of the hapori puoro of Aotearoa.

‘Exhilarating’ score wins major prize

The South Africa-based Australian String Quartet’s recording of Grammy-winning composer Bryce Dessner’s powerful score Impermanence/Disintegration won a major international music prize.

Sydney Dance Company and ASQ co-commissioned Dessner (founder of American rock band The National) to create the music to accompany Rafael Bonachela’s choreography in the dance production Impermanencewhich premiered in Sydney in February 2021 before performing as part of the Adelaide Festival program the following month.

The feature film Impermanence/Disintegration album – released last year on US independent label 37d03d – today won the top prize for Best Classical Record at the Libera Awards from the A2IM (American Association of Independent Music), the biggest celebration of independent music in the world. country.

Dessner’s music and Bonachela’s choreography have been influenced by the 2019-2020 Australian bushfires and the blaze that nearly destroyed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, and are described as an emotional response to the impermanence and to the “ephemeral transience of life”. The nine tracks on the album have titles such as “Alarms”, “Disintegration”, “Embers” and “Emergency”.

ASQ musicians Dale Barltrop, Francesca Hiew, Stephen King, Christopher Cartlidge and Rachael Tobin participated in the performance and recording of Impermanence/Disintegration.

“It is an honor to have received this award in recognition of our collaboration with Bryce Dessner and the Sydney Dance Company,” violinist Barltrop said in a statement. “We are indebted to Rafael Bonachela, Artistic Director of the Sydney Dance Company, for his vision in bringing this project to fruition and to Bryce for his exhilarating score.”

Impermanence is currently on tour in Australia.

Call of Rumpus

The next work presented at Rumpus is that of the Corseted Rabbits collective Di and Viv and Rose.

The Rumpus Theater invites creators who have a project that might be suitable for its 2023 season to express their interest.

The collective of independent theater makers – based at 100 Sixth Street in Bowden – says it wants its fifth annual season “to be created by professional artists independent of SA; consist of courageous, relevant and innovative work; aim to target new or younger or more diverse audiences; celebrating and promoting diversity in our community, in all its forms; [and] present new works by local artists or a new approach to pre-existing works”.

He’s looking for both main season shows (full production) and “baby plays” (work in development), with expressions of interest ending July 6 (more info and an application form can be found here).

Rumpus is also currently seeking a Season Manager (job description here) to support the delivery of its 2022 season.

Meet the Minister

The Arts Industry Council of SA is hosting an event later this month where guests can meet Andrea Michaels, the new Arts Minister for State Government (and Small Family Business, Consumers and Business).

“It will be an evening of networking, artist provocations and live music!” the council says of the free event at Sparkke at the Whitmore on June 29. Further details are forthcoming, but you can register your interest in attending here.

My story my way

Urbel, a portrait of former Afghan refugee Murtaza Hussaini, who now works as an artist after earning a visual arts degree at UniSA.

Young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds share their stories in a collection of artworks on display at the Hawke Center’s Kerry Packer Civic Gallery this month.

My story my waypresented by the Australian Refugee Association (ARA) and the Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre, includes drawings and paintings from the young artists’ home countries (including Afghanistan and Syria), as well as artwork which capture their new life in Australia and their experience of moving between different worlds.

It is accompanied by an artists’ market featuring works (some of which are for sale) by artists of all ages from refugee and migrant backgrounds, and a series of short films presented as part of the Ghan International Film Festival Australia.

coinciding with My story my way and SA Refugee Week, the ARA and the Hawke Center present a roundtable on June 23 that will examine the benefits, dangers and responsibilities of using storytelling to raise the voices of those who are traditionally underrepresented in mainstream media, including people who have had traumatic experiences (details and listings here).

Street art tours

Adelaide is full of interesting street art, but the fact that it’s often hidden behind buildings or alleyways means some of the more interesting pieces can be overlooked.

According to Walking SA, which is running a series of guided art trail walks this month, there are more than 50 works of street art in the CBD alone. It promises participants on its three tours – each of which travel around 4km east, west and south of the city – to experience a wide range of styles “representing the diversity of artists and the cultural scene of ‘Adelaide”.

This weekend’s tours are already sold out but last time we looked there were still places available for June 22 and 23.

NEPA Stage Staff

Today, the organizers of the Electric City Music Conference announced that two Lifetime Achievement Awards will be presented at the 2022 Steamtown Music Awards ceremony.

The ninth annual Local Music Awards will honor legendary Scranton roots rock band Old Friends and Tom LeFevre, owner and operator of Stroudsburg’s Main Street Jukebox record store.

The award was suspended during the pandemic ceremonies so as not to take away the honour. Previous recipients include George Wesley, Bret Alexander, Alan K. Stout, Strength for a Reason and Glass Prism, to name a few.

Over the past 47 years, Old Friends has proven to be one of Northeast Pennsylvania’s most popular and enduring bands. Their name came naturally, as the original members grew up together in West Scranton. Musicians from Scranton bands Jack and the Rippers, Thy Sheep and Bards of Yarrow would eventually unite to form the band known as Old Friends today.

“Old friends are a big part of why I’m involved in music. They used to rehearse in my parents’ basement and I would sneak in and play drums. I learned to making sound with my dad at their gigs. I owe the band a lot,” said Matt Kester, Nowhere Slow drummer and owner of Matt Kester Productions. He will also induct the band.

Old Friends were originally formed as an acoustic duo in 1975 consisting of the late Dave Wight and Jack Bordo. They were playing in a disco band but wanted to move more towards the country rock genre. Eventually, Paul Moran and his future wife Mary Moran would join the band.

Billy Saar, who was playing with a jazz band at the time, soon joined the band. After a stint with Steamtown Lifetime Achievement Award winner George Wesley, Chris Dellecave joined the band.

The late 1970s and early 80s saw Old Friends’ fan base grow exponentially and the group became a regional powerhouse. They were even among the finalists in an international battle of the bands that took place in Nashville. Unlike other Scranton bands of the time, the group featured a distinctive sound that utilized harmonica, banjo, washboard, and even a tub bass.

The band briefly called it quits in 1983, only to return for a “reunion” show in 1985. The “Old Friends Reunion” grew to draw thousands and became a staple of the summer season at NEPA. People travel far and wide to attend.

Over the years many members have come and gone. Some even died. The Steamtown Music Awards are honored to recognize all members, past and present, with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Since 1994, Tom LeFevre has run Main Street Jukebox, a conveniently located record store on Main Street in downtown Stroudsburg. Under his leadership, the Jukebox has always been a place not only to buy music, but also a community center where local musicians performed and artists exhibited their work.

Boasting one of the largest vinyl collections on the East Coast, the store suffered a devastating fire in 2006. Despite the loss of irreplaceable stock and the economic uncertainty of “the Great Recession”, the store is reborn from its ashes and reopens on the other side. from Main Street in Stroudsburg.

“Tom had a profound impact on my life. Not only was he always supportive of everything I did musically, but he even tolerated me when I was a boring student who couldn’t even afford to buy anything in his store. On a deeper note, the first gig I ever hosted was a day-long festival to benefit the Jukebox after the 2006 fire at their store,” explained Joe Caviston, organizer of the ADM.

“If I’m in the Poconos, I always stop by the Jukebox for a hearty chat with Tom and, of course, the best selection of new vinyl releases. But honestly, like most clients, I’m here to see Tom.

LeFevre’s shop is located near the Sherman Theater, making it an attractive stop for many touring musicians who like to rummage through its vinyl archives. A young 50 Cent, then living in Delaware Water Gap, even frequented the store. Some of 50 Cent’s early mixtapes flew off the shelves of the Jukebox.

The 2023 Grammy Awards will include new accolades, including best video game soundtrack of the year and songwriter of the year, the Recording Academy announced Thursday.

In the biggest change of the year, the Songwriter of the Year award will not be open to performers or producers, but instead focus on songwriters who often receive little recognition for their contributions and who lobbied for years for such an adjustment to the prestigious music award.

Artists will also be able to submit their work for Best Alternative Music Performance, Best American Performance and Best Spoken Poetry Album, an area that will now be separated from the ever-quirky audiobook category.

The Recording Academy will also award a Special Merit Award, chosen by an appointed committee, for Best Song for Social Change, which aims to celebrate tracks that “contain lyrical content that addresses a current social issue and promotes understanding , peacebuilding and empathy”.

The changes follow several years of overhauling the Grammy category as the academy tries to quell criticism that its award choices are not inclusive and do not reflect developments in the music industry.

“We are thrilled to honor these diverse communities of music creators through the newly created awards and edits, and to continue to cultivate an environment that inspires change, progress and collaboration,” said Harvey Mason Jr., CEO of the academy, in a press release. .

In 2020, the Los Angeles-based institution went through a number of category name swaps, including changing the controversial “urban contemporary” to “progressive R&B.”

The move came amid growing concerns in the music industry that “urban” was far too general to encompass genres, including hip-hop and R&B, which it came to describe, and minimized the innovations of black musicians.
