Abstract New Zealand's 'Dunedin Sound' of the 1980s is a phenomenon known throughout the world. But what does Dunedin music-making sound like in the 21st century? Dunedin Soundings features diverse and interesting essays from musicians, composers, and scholar/practitioners who discuss: genres as diverse as brass band, opera, classical, Indonesian gamelan, jazz, rock, and more * the intricacies of the composition and lyric writing processes * digital remixing * scoring for film and television. Together, they reveal the ways in which these supposedly separate music fields have the potential to inform and stimulate each other. The theoretical idea behind the book is that performance and composition practices constitute a process of research. The writers are practitioners who are recognized nationally and internationally for their contributions to New Zealand music across genres, including composer Anthony Ritchie, the Verlaines' Graeme Downes, Emmy award nominee Trevor Coleman, and Refuel and Dunedinmusic.com founder Scott Muir. This book is for everyone with a serious passion and wide-ranging intellectual curiosity for music.
