Capsule forum is sourcing your views on “Engaging regional audiences – how do we do it?” What are your thoughts?

Andy Roberts mailed to draw attention to something of interest. Have you seen the Capsule forum recently on the subject of  local audiences? The forum comments raise some interesting issues and some of the comments make interesting reading.

http://www.capsule.org.uk/blog/2010/01/28/engaging-regional-audiences-how-do-we-do-it/#comment-33475069

Andy has added a comment already, you are invited to do the same. He said it’s a disappointment to see so many negative comments about attendances at gigs in Brum, when lately he’s been to a number of really well attended local shows. Not the case always, but he suggests it’s really creating an imbalanced view of the city’s music scene. What do you think?

Starsailor’s songs have always been awash with timeless, perfectly sculpted melodies – all underpinned by James Walsh’s fragile, soaring vocals.

MON 07 DEC
CODEINE VELVET CLUB (Jon Lawler – Fratellis)
Codeine Velvet Club – a new outfit from Jon Lawler of The Fratelli’s – which exudes a Sixties-inspired sound that’s equal parts Phil Spector’s teenage symphonies and John Barry’s sharp 007 soundtracks shall be with us on December 7th!

+ Franz Nicolay (The Hold Steady)
New album Klamath out now. Written and recorded in a log cabin in the middle of the woods by the Klamath river, California. The pastoral, laid back, late night sparse feel to the album harkens back to Eitzel’s folk influences of Nick Drake and John Martyn and earlier work with AMC. “It’s gorgeous and every bit as good as those early American Music Club records” THE INDEPENDENT

Mark has previously been awarded ‘Songwriter Of The year’ and ‘Album Of The Year’ by Rolling Stone magazine. American Music Club played a wonderful show at The Glee in support of their highly acclaimed ‘The Golden Age’ album. We hear Mark shall also be bringing another CD available to buy at shows.

Introduction

Andy Derrick introduced how the Birmingham Music Network works and that it was a support network for musicians.

1.    Lyndsey Hardiman asked if any of the attendees had come across pay to play in any local venues.

Abi Seabrook said she had heard of venues that make the band buy an amount of tickets.

Bob Ubki said that Rich Bitch studios wanted bands to pay for hire of the room for invited guests.

Andy Derrick voiced the opinion that pay to play takes away artists choice and is very narrow minded thinking.

A discussion ensued of what opportunities are available for Birmingham bands.

2.    Andy Derrick asked the attendees if they were aware of Surface Unsigned and what their thoughts on it were.

It was mentioned that on certain websites and blogs there is a general negative feeling.  There is a rumour that it is pay to play and that bands are required to sell a certain amount of tickets.

Robert Lane asked for people’s opinions on competitive gigs

Abi felt that even if it was competitive it was just another gig that would raise your bands profile although she would never pay to enter one.  Also that a bit of competition is a healthy thing.

3.    Bob Euby is looking to get Bhangra footage edited and put together and asked if anyone could help.

Andy recommended musoplex and Pete offered to help.

4.    Dave Ewer who is a student at Birmingham College University has taken over Birmingham Words which is a local website whose funding has been taken over by the University.  He wants to find creative people in the following areas, music, film and fiction writing.
The website is going to be re-launched over the next few months and they are hoping to bring out a quarterly magazine.  He is hoping to feature and showcase people, also to promote Birmingham.

Simon Howes recommended that he spoke to Andrew Dubber and Paul Bradshaw both of which work in the Media School.  Also that he speaks to Paul Brushwood who is a Creative teacher in the college.

5.    Pete Rhead spoke about his work at the studio Musoplex which can do everything for a musician from videos and photos to recording etc.

Andy spoke about the workshop that is happening at Musoplex on Thursday 9th October entitled ‘Everything you need to know about the music business’.

6.    Andy Blakemore talked about Creative Launchpad which helps people in the creative sector and is free of charge.  It can assist people to put together a business plan. He offered his availability to help anyone that wanted to chat.

7.    Perminder who is a singer for Asian and English film is looking for finance for films.  He spoke about his work to date and the fact that it is a very specific art form and difficult to do.

8.    Justin from Scratch Radio which is a student and community station that is trying to reflect what goes on in Birmingham.  They want to connect with people that are passionate about music and are willing to get involved.  Examples of way that people can get involved are interviewing bands and artists and going to gigs and reviewing them.  They are offering training to anyone that is interested in getting involved.  The radio station is based at the Perry Barr Campus and is going live in January 2009. studio@scratchradio.co.uk

9.    Clare Edwards came to speak about Gigbeth which is running in conjuction with Music Live.  The headlining acts are the Guillemots and the Sugar Hill Gang plus lots of local bands. There will be a conference at the Radisson Hotel on the 6th November.  Gigbeth has three stands of thought music education, how to promote your music better and music law and IP.  Clare offered to have interviewers from Scratch Radio.  Tickets are available from ticketseller.com and at Rooty Frooty’s and also from 0844 8883 883.  www.gigbeth.com

This ‘cast has 360, Lil Miss Vix Buzzfox, Rich Batsford, Arc Vel, Loopz and Cellardoor.
