HARVEY SUTHERLAND UNPACKING ‘SOMETHING IN THE WATER’
6pm – 6:45pm

One of Australia’s favourite artists unpacks this wonderful song, walking us through the entire creative process from the initial idea first demo, through the sessions to the final master recording.

‘Something in the Water’ is the first single from Harvey Sutherland’s new studio band, which comprises long-time drummer Graeme Pogson, percussionist Phil Binotto and bassist Luke Hodgson. It was recorded and produced at Harvey Sutherland’s velour-lined recording studio that might just come in handy as a survival bunker when the approaching apocalypse hits Melbourne’s inner-northern suburbs.

Session facilitated by Sara Glaidous, APRA AMCOS

REAL TALK – Does anyone even listen to demos anymore?

7pm – 7:30pm

The old process of sending your music to an industry gatekeeper may no longer work. But why? How are artists being discovered in 2019? How do you reach out to the industry these days, or do you just let the industry come to you? A label A&R, a booker/manager and a distributor discuss the modern ways artists are breaking through and how much opportunity unsolicited demos can really afford.

GROWTH GUIDES: Prioritising Community

7:35pm – 8:05pm

It’s easy to fall for the hype around social follows and numbers of streams, but are these bankable metrics of success? In this session we look at the ways many have built a strong online and offline community around music – whether as an artist, a music collective, a party – and what has been key to their success in generating support, engagement and fandom, rather than just statistics.

SPEAKERS
Xander Malual, The Listening Co
Jerry Poon – The Operatives
Juñor Ondaatje – AUDollars / R.E.A.L Music
Paige X. Cho – Bolster
Facilitated by Arlo Enemark, Xelon Entertainment / Medium Rare Recordings
