Music, play on!

For me, music has been a life-long love.

Playing, purchasing, listening and producing it has been a constant in my personal (and often professional) life. An enduring curiosity has allowed me to explore and encounter wonderful new genres and artists.

There are few limits to the types of music I appreciate, from baroque to deep house, trip-hop to soundtrack opera. In the pre-Internet age, record store owners in two hemispheres offered insights and introductions. For a taste of this inspirational journey, view the Pinterest board “elegance in music“.

Fortunately, working in radio, live music, film and online, has allowed me to discover, collaborate with and promote a wide variety of musicians.

Of my extensive musical activities, I have:

  • played in a band for ten years
  • performed in an orchestra
  • sung on a choral recording
  • collected records of obscure artists
  • produced live-to-air concerts from a radio studio
  • produced hundreds of hours of radio

  • engaged composers on major mini-series and feature films
  • hired bands to perform on screen for television drama
  • seen someone jam a knife into the stage, while Talking Heads played “Psycho Killer”
  • experienced ‘Tommy’ in quadrophonic sound at The Capitol, Sydney
  • produced a television commercial with Rita Coolidge
  • collaborated with composer on an authentic computer game soundtrack

  • managed the film shoot of a music video for German rapper Sabrina Setlur
  • gone drinking with INXS in the back streets of Hong Kong
  • been to see Lionel Hampton play vibraphone in Paris
  • walked out on a lethargic Miles Davis at the ‘Ent Cent’
  • danced to the beat on beaches in Thailand and The Philippines
  • hung out in blues bars in Tokyo
  • witnessed the Old Jazz Band in the Peace Hotel, Shanghai
  • clubbed to trance music in Jakarta

and just today:

From thousands of hopefuls, Jenna was selected to appear on “The Voice”. She was one of only 15 contestants for whom all 4 coaches turned their chairs.

Described as having “the voice of an angel”, Jenna has been performing and writing for many years. The website reflects her character and music and showcases song lyrics, audio tracks, photographs and video.

The site is responsive, so it adapts to browser width of the platform on which it is viewed; desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Built in WordPress it is also hosted by Digital Tsunami.

The website is just the latest in a lifelong engagement with music.

Play on!
