Third Ear Symposium, London Southbank Centre

Posted on July 18, 2012

Attended this day long music industry seminar in order to extend my contemporary music networks and deepen my understanding of issues facing the sector in the digital age. Enjoyed the excellent presentations and made some great new contacts, whilst reconnecting with old ones- such as my British Council Music counterpart, Paul Parkinson, pictured! This event was part of the 20 x 12 new music commissions at London’s Southbank Centre and whilst I was not able to attend other premieres over the weekend, I was able to gain a good insight into the kind of work being commissioned in the UK these days and to appreciate the fast pace of change. Initiatives such as the BBC’s The Space were given a good profile during the event and I shall be looking for ways to integrate Australian NBN targeted projects into this world class project.
