"New Art Music"... "Business"?

A foreign concept to many, but not to all.

The panelists are;

Lyle Chan (moderator) – Creative consultant / Composer -

Louis Garrick – Sydney Chamber Opera -

David Sidebottom - Synergy Taikoz -

Jo Kee - SIMA, Cockatoo Calling (and many other initiatives!) -

Andrew Batt-Rawden – Chronology Arts, Aurora Festival, Composer -

Damien Ricketson - Ensemble Offspring, Composer - 

This forum takes two completely diametrically opposed concepts and brings them together to look at contemporary models for sustaining a business within "new art music". Key foci for this panel discussion include "What is a sustainable business?", "can we survive without funding?", as well as diversified sources of income, new channels, new efficiencies (and inefficiencies) that need to be dealt with.

We recommend checking out "Music Business" published by Omnibus Press by Shane Simpson and Jules Munroe as a starting text if you want to get seriously into the fold!

Come along if you're a muso with an inner entrepreneur, or an entrepreneur with an ear for music, or a student wanting to get in touch with future possibilities.

If you have a business solution for this wily, difficult niche sector and would like to present it in a pecha-kucha style presentation (short and sweet with interesting pics), email with your idea! This is an ideal forum to get feedback, partners, inspiration, contacts and a few tips and tricks.
