IMNZ Newsletter & Charts to February 15: Cats creating copyright infringement?

The finalists for the 2015 Taite Music Prize have been announced – there is a great selection of top-notch albums for the judges to choose from. Read on to find out which albums have ben selected as contenders.

We were all shocked last week to hear about the truck accident that led to the cancellation of the Foo Fighters’ benefit show for the NZ Music Foundation. The main concern was for the welfare of the truck’s driver, and there was a great show of support from the Foo Fighters themselves – who dedicated ‘Big Me’ to the injured man at their Auckland show – promoters Frontier Touring, and fans and musicians from all around New Zealand. We wish the driver a full recovery.

The Taite Music Prize: unveiling the finalists

Independent Music NZ is very pleased to announce that the finalists for the Taite Music Prize 2015 have now been confirmed.

Named after the late Dylan Taite, one of the country’s most highly respected music journalists, this will be the sixth year for the award. The Taite Music Prize’s purpose is to recognise outstanding creativity for an entire collection of music contained on one album. The winner will receive a cash prize of $10,000, to be spent as they wish. The cash prize is kindly supplied by the Founding Partner Recorded Music NZ. The winner will also receive free recording time at Red Bull Studio Auckland and a year’s supply of Red Bull product.

This year’s ten finalists, from a lengthy list of 65 nominations submitted by record labels both independent and major from across the country, are:
@peace – ‘@peace and the Plutonian Noise Symphony’ (Young, Gifted and Broke)
Aldous Harding – ‘Aldous Harding’ (Lyttleton Records/Flying Out)

The ten albums in contention for the 2015 prize includes a wellspring of fresh and experienced talent with Aldous Harding nominated for her self-titled debut album (Lyttelton Records/Flying Out) and Kimbra nominated for her sophomore album ‘The Golden Echo’ (Warner Bros). Tami Neilson delivers her third album ‘Dynamite’ (Neilson Records), and is a first time finalist.

Joining them as a 3rd time finalist (all in consecutive years) is @Peace for the album ‘@peace and the Plutonian Noise Symphony’ (Young, Gifted and Broke). Songwriter Tom Scott of @Peace, has also previously been shortlisted as part of the group Homebrew. Also returning as a finalist artist, for the second time, is Tiny Ruins with the album ‘Brightly Painted One’ (Arch Hill / Spunk).

Jakob have been on the NZ musical landscape since 1998 and the album ‘Sines’ (Shoot The Freak) is their fourth album – this is first time the Napier-based group have been a finalist in the Taite Music Prize. Grayson Gilmour is also a first time finalist, for his fourth album proper ‘Infinite Life!’ (Flying Nun Records) – his oeuvre contains multiple film soundtrack compositions, remixes and compiled material. Rounding out the first-time finalists for 2015 is Mulholland with ‘Stop and Start Again’ (Mulholland), which is Jol Mulholland’s sophomore solo effort, Electric Wire Hustle with their sophomore album ‘Love Can Prevail’ (EWH Ltd. / Okayplayer Records) and Delaney Davidson with his fifth solo album ‘Swim Down Low’ (Outside Inside). Delaney’s career has included at least four other collaborative albums, and he is also the producer for Tami Neilson’s ‘Dynamite!’ (Neilson Records) debut album.

Christy Whelan, chairperson of IMNZ says, “We are proud to celebrate artistic freedom of expression through the recognition of New Zealand’s great albums. This year’s finalists (and impressive list of nominees) for the Taite Music Prize show that creativity and diversity amongst the recording sector in New Zealand is thriving, and with everyone seeking the coveted award it is sure to be a great night.”

Damian Vaughan, CEO of Recorded Music NZ – Founding Partner of the Taite Music Prize said, “There were some fantastic New Zealand albums released in 2014, and this year’s Taite Music Prize finalists are a true reflection of the best local recordings.”

The overall award winner will be announced on Wednesday the 15th of April at an invitation-only event at Galatos Live in Auckland’s central city. The ceremony will include live performances and the presentation of this year’s Independent Music NZ Classic Record award, acknowledging a defining NZ record from our yesteryear. Last year’s recipient was the ‘AK.79’ compilation album (Ripper Records, RPR1, December 1979).
The voting panel to determine the finalists was made up of a broad section of music media and industry specialists alongside all current members of Independent Music New Zealand (IMNZ).

There will be a second round of judging by a selected music panel to decide the overall winner. The judges will make their decision based entirely on the artistic merit of the album(s). Sales, genres, artist recognition or popularity are not contributing factors in their decision-making process.

The New Zealand Music Foundation thanks supporters in wake of cancelled Foo Fighters benefit show
The New Zealand Music Foundation have expressed its hope for the speedy recovery of a truck driver whose rig rolled near Taihape , causing irreparable damage to vital equipment needed for Friday night’s Foo Fighters benefit concert at the Auckland Town Hall, resulting in its cancellation.

Thankfully the driver is expected to be ok.

The charity has received messages and support from the band and fans from NZ and around the world online, by email and phone and social media in the wake of news of the cancellation.
Chair of The New Zealand Music Foundation, Campbell Smith says: “There’s no doubt that the proceeds of the concert would have allowed the charity to considerably expand our work supporting music-based projects around the country that make a real difference to the lives of those in need in NZ. But we are grateful for the support of the Foo Fighters and will continue to do our best to realise Dave Grohl’s sincere belief that the world will be a better place if music is more a part of our daily lives.” 

The New Zealand Music Foundation receives no government support and relies on donations and memberships to support music-based projects and programmes around the country that change the lives of those in need and provide emergency assistance to people in the music industry experiencing illness, distress and hardship.

The New Zealand Music Foundation supports music-based projects in healthcare, education, rehabilitation, volunteering and many other areas in communities all over NZ, changing the lives of those in need through music. It also provides vital support at times of hardship to members of the NZ music community.

In House: Songs & Conversations
Following the sold out success and standing ovations of 2014, APRA and the Q Theatre are again proud to present In House – Songs & ConversationsIn House 2015 brings together four of New Zealand’s most acclaimed songwriters in a unique and intimate setting, with all proceeds going to support The New Zealand Music Foundation. This year joining Don McGlashan are Rodney Fisher (Goodshirt), Anna Coddington and Jol Muholland, with performances that explore the stories behind the music that fuels our city and our lives. Much like a house concert, each artist will perform solo or with the acoustic backing of the others, responding to a series of ’starting points’: one of their own songs that the audience would expect, one they wouldn’t, a new song, and a cover that made them think about our city in a different way. This might be a song by an Aucklander, about Auckland, or just a song that made them see Auckland in a different light.

Trinity Roots ~ Citizen
The Wellington-based Platinum-selling trio Trinity Roots follow up 2004’s Home, Land, and Sea with their highly anticipated third studio album Citizen. They have expanded their palette of colours and painted an informed snap-shot of present day NZ.  With the departure of Jean PompeyWarren Maxwell (vocals, guitar) and Rio Hemopo (bass) are joined by new drummer Ben Wood (Newtown Rocksteady, Hikoikoi Reserve, Amiria Grenell, French For Rabbits). Citizen will be released Friday March 13th, and the trio will celebrate with performances at the WOMAD festival in Taranaki, 13-15 March. The band released their first single “Haiku” an urgent chugging track in September 2014 and are strongly following that up with the release of ‘El Kaptain’ a bubbling analogy “reflecting the arrogant, fiscal heavy result of the last election. A selfish Captain of a gold laden vessel for the elite… Given ironic license by the apathetic villagers – a true tale of woe!”

Around the World

No, that cat purring on YouTube isn’t infringing music copyright 
Hour-long track of cat purring triggers YouTube’s Content ID system, but it’s definitely not a feline cover version of Focus track
By Stuart Dredge of The Guardian

Cats and copyright infringement: two of the internet’s most popular pursuits … together at last! Except in this case, the copyright infringement has turned out to be a red herring.

The cause was an hour-long, audio-only YouTube video of a cat purring, uploaded in March 2014 by a user named Digihaven. With less than 3,000 views, it was very much in the long (furry) tail of Google’s online video service.

In 2015, though, it’s suddenly at the centre of a copyright row, after being flagged by YouTube’s Content ID system as possibly using a song called Focus, with its rights administered by music publisher EMI and collecting society PRS for Music. By “claiming” the video, those rights holders disabled Digihaven’s ability to make money from it through advertising, according to TorrentFreak.

Even though the revenues wouldn’t even have paid for a forkful of cat food, their response has been firstly to dispute the claim, and secondly to plaster an over-dramatic “LARGE RECORD COMPANIES WANT TO TAKE THIS VIDEO DOWN! DON’T LET THEM!” message on top of the clip.

That’s not strictly true – EMI and PRS aren’t record companies, and they didn’t take the video down – and the additional message encouraging viewers to “CLICK HERE: SUBSCRIBE TO SAVE THE CATS OF YOUTUBE!” hints at a mischievous hope of turning online outrage into an audience for future videos.

There are some serious issues bubbling away in the background here, though. How did the audio-fingerprinting software used by YouTube for Content ID mistake a cat purr for a musical composition, for a start.

But there’s also a long-running debate about how the Content ID system works when false copyright claims are filed, with suggestions that music rights holders can be too trigger-happy with their claims on occasion, and questions over whether Content ID does enough to combat bogus claims.

In truth, YouTube has improved on that score over the years, shaking up its appeals process to tilt it a bit more towards creators in 2012, for example. That’s the process that applied in Digihaven’s case, as they challenged the copyright claim, with EMI having already withdrawn it.

“When it’s brought to our attention that a video or channel has been claimed mistakenly, we work with the claimant to fix it,” a YouTube spokesperson told the Guardian, confirming that the issue had been corrected.

Digihaven’s cat is free to crack on with their career as a YouTuber. Although if they want to make it big, they might need an instrument.
